Discover the tough and resilient Evans cherry, also known as 'Bali', a sour cherry cultivar that thrives in harsh climates like the Canadian prairies. This cherry tree grows on its own rootstock, eliminating the need for grafting and ensuring compatibility between the shoot and root. The Evans cherry bears abundant fruit with bright red fruit and pink-tinted to clear juice. Best trained as a tree, this self-pollinating cherry is easy to harvest, making it an excellent choice for those who love fresh sour cherries straight from the tree. With a ripening season in North America in August, the Evans cherry is a self-fruitful, zone 3a cherry that's perfect for any home orchard.
