Gardeners' Notes:

Neutral coriaceous On Jan 6, 2015, coriaceous from ROSLINDALE, MA wrote:

The fruit is said to be much sweeter than other sour cherry cultivars (P. cerasus). The spring flowers are the equal of any ornamental cherry.

This cultivar is vigorous but naturally semi-dwarf. Self-fruitful, and an exceptionally heavy producer. The cultivar is exceptionally winter hardy, and its flowers are exceptionally frost-resistant.

The cultivar name is 'Evans Bali', often called 'Bali' in catalogs.

Popularized by Dr. Ieuan Evans, who rescued it in 1976 from a productive orchard, scheduled for demolition, northeast of Edmonton, AB near Fort Saskatchewan on the Canadian prairies.

Neutral altagardener On Apr 18, 2009, altagardener from Calgary, AB (Zone 3b) wrote:

A sour cherry that is hardy through zones 2 and 3. Produces large, bright red, yellow-fleshed, slightly tart fruit. Heavy production after a small number of years; small, single-trunk trees, to ~8 feet (2.4m) here, with slight suckering tendency.
