Romeo™ Dwarf Cherry

Lots and lots of fruit

Romeo™ Dwarf Cherry

Lots and lots of fruit

You'll fall in love with this "sweet-talking" berry's deep crimson, full-sized, glossy fruit with incredible sugar levels for a tart cherry type. Grown for its exceptional cold-hardiness, dwarf stature, and high flesh-to-pit ratio. This means more fruit per pound with less weight from the pits.
