This early-season tree will give you pound after pound of bright-red, tart fruits—use them to make utterly delicious pies and cobblers, or freeze them for later use. The yellow flesh makes clear juice. A naturally dwarf tree, ideal for small spaces. Originates from Montmorency Valley, France in the 13th century, introduced to the U.S. in 1852. Cold-hardy. Ripens in June. Self-pollinating.
