Prunus avium Venus or Sweet Cherry Venus
Prunus avium Venus is a deciduous cherry tree. It is a cultivar of the wild cherry Prunus avium. Although it is self-fertile, it will create a more ample crop of cherries if you plant a pollinator closeby. Prunus avium Early Rivers, Prunus avium Merton Premier, and Prunus avium Merchant all make ideal pollinators for Venus.

Venus produces an abundance of white, sweet-smelling flowers in the spring. After flowering, this fruiting tree starts to develop fairly large, dark red almost black cherries with a good taste. In early June and July, the tree’s crop of firm cherries are ready for harvest. During the autumn, the tree’s foliage turns brilliant hues of yellow and orange.

The tree reaches a height of 6 to 10 metres. It has a canopy spread of 6 metres.

How Hardy is the Prunus avium Venus

How to use the Prunus avium Venus
Prunus avium Venus is a lovely addition to any landscape. It produces ample flowers and its fruit is a valuable food source for birds and woodland creatures. Plant the tree in a location where you can enjoy its blooms, colorful fruit and autumn hues.

How to Care for the Prunus avium Venus
To encourage ample flower and fruit production plant the tree in full sun. For best growth, the tree prefers well-draining sandy loam that has ample organic material.

Pruning should take place when the tree is dominant.
