From Wisconsin orchardist Bill Eubank, this new cherry tree has the sweetest tasting cherries we have ever sampled. Although it is not quite sweet enough for fresh eating like a Bing, the cherries from the Sweet Cherry Pie™ tree are fantastic for jams, jellies and pies. Imagine being able to pick cherries in your back yard for homemade summer pies! Hardy to Zone 4, even northern gardeners can grow homemade fruit. With its relatively compact size, growing to 15', this is a great tree for a home garden or small orchard.

Black Ice® Plum
Prunus ‘Lydecker’ PP16,621
Description & Overview
Black Ice® plum produces large round black fruits that ripen in early August in Wisconsin. The fruit is sweet, juicy and semi-cling. This plum was derived from a complex cross of sand cherry (Prunus besseyi) with Japanese plum genetics. The goal by the breeder was to obtain a Japanese type plum that was hardy enough to grow in the upper mid-west yet had the quality to compete with Japanese plums readily available on the summer markets from west coast growers.
