Nanking Cherry, Prunus tomentosa, is a fruiting cherry bush that produces edible cherry fruit for both wildlife and human consumption. The fruit of the Nanking cherry is commonly used in pies and jellies. The Nanking Cherry tree like shrub is a good choice for wildlife plantings and windbreaks. Nanking cherry shrubs are moderate in longevity, having moderate water requirements, and a low salt & alkali tolerance. Plant 6 to 8 feet apart for hedges or windbreaks.
Nanking cherry is a tough cherry bush that it will even grow under semiarid conditions and still endure a snowless winter of -40°F. Generally, these cherry bushes grow about 8 feet tall and equally wide producing grape size fruit between sweet and tart in flavor.
