Prunus tomentosa Jules (Nanking White Cherry)

This fruit tree boasts loads of sweetly tart, white fruit that covers the tree in early mid-summer. Delicate white blossoms grow on red stalks and calyxes, while dark green, elliptic foliage covers the tree in spring. This particular species of cherry tree develops a lustrous dark mahogany bark that, as it matures, sheds in thin strips of vertical curls, making it ornamentally beautiful as well. Slow growth rate.
