The Evans Cherry is a robust, cold-hardy variety of sour cherry, known for its adaptability and vibrant red fruit. Mature trees typically reach heights of 12 to 15 feet, with a similar spread. This cultivar is exceptionally cold tolerant, thriving in Canadian hardiness zones 3 through 8, which makes it a suitable choice for many Canadian gardens.

Evans Cherry prefers well-drained, loamy soil, though it is adaptable to various soil types. Full sunlight is ideal for this plant, as it encourages the best fruit production. It's important to provide consistent moisture, especially during fruiting and hot periods.

Historically, the Evans Cherry holds a unique place in Canadian horticulture. It was rediscovered in Alberta, where it was found to thrive despite the region's challenging climate. This resilience and the tree's bountiful yields have made it a popular choice among both commercial growers and home gardeners. Its tart, flavorful cherries are often used in jams, pies, and preserves, making it a valued addition to any edible garden.
