Full sun, Zone 3b
Prunus cerasus ‘Sweet Thing’
Pot size #1
New release from the University of Saskatchewan in 2021!
Sweet Thing really lives up to its name! Sweeter, firmer, and larger than most sour cherries, this variety is worth trying if you’re a fan of Bing or BC cherries. Most sour cherries average 3-4 grams, whereas Sweet Thing produces cherries that average 5-6 grams. Self-fertile.
Though developed in Saskatchewan, Sweet Thing is still considered experimental in zone 3. We recommend planting in a sheltered location (minimal wind exposure) and ideally in a location with significant snowfall.
Mature size: 6-8′ tall by 6-8′ wide
