Compact Sweet Cherry Bush 'Porthos' 3L Potted Plant
Item number MQF6V
Compact Sweet Cherry Bush 'Porthos' 3L Potted PlantThis is simply a completely new way to grow cherries, one which were it not for the persistence of an enthusiastic breeder may never have seen the light of day. It is the first bush cherry, as opposed to a tree. As such, it forms a nice neat mound of many, many fruiting branches right from the base and as a result does not get too tall, making picking really easy - as well as netting from pesky birds. It still has fabulous sweet flavour to rival market leading 'Stella', it yields well, and is 100% self-fertile - it also bears the iconic cherry blossom in springtime too, making it the perfect garden cherry. If pruned hard each summer, it can be kept very compact, and can even produce big crops of fruit in large pots at 4 to 5 feet tall.
