Cherry Seeds, Mazzard/Sweet Cherry

Prunus avium. Zones 3 - 7

Mazzard Cherry is a robust and determined cherry tree that offers high yields of tiny, delicious cherries! This wild-ish variety is extremely disease resistant and works great as a root stock for grafting other varieties. Mazzard is productive but also incredibly beautiful! In Springtime, the entire tree is engulfed by tiny, off-white cherry blossoms that give even Spring magnolias a run for their money! Fruit presents about 80 days after flowering. This is a great food and habitat shrub, ideal for permaculture design.
