Nanking Cherry

Growing and fruiting well in Ipswich, QLD. Leaves not as large but thinner than in pictures but tree covered in fruit less than one year after buying from Daleys. Tastes much like a plum. | Vojtech - Barellan Point, QLD 17-Nov-2018

Nanking Cherry

We had a hot autumn this year in Ipswich QLD and the Nanking Cherries are fruiting for a second time in one year. Has green fruit in April. Hopefully will ripen soon. Excellent plant for subtropics for up to two crops per year. | Vojtech Hlinka - Ipswich, QLD 18-Apr-2019
