The Sweetheart cherry is a hybrid of the Van and Newstar cultivars first developed in Canada. Highly ornamental year round, with beautiful pink and white blooms against a backdrop of shiny, dark green leaves. The beauty continues with red and orange autumn leaves, followed by bark that adds textural interest throughout the winter. Fruit are red to dark red and have a sweet flavour with an excellent texture. Sweetheart cherry trees are self-pollinating but another variety will increase fruit production. Grows 6-9'.
