'Evans' is a dwarf sour cherry with extreme cold-hardiness (Zone 3A). The trees are self-fruitful and need no rootstock. This famous tree was rediscovered in Alberta in the 1920s, but it's believed it may have Alaskan or Minnesotan origins.

Our seed comes from the good folks at Sheffield's Seed Company in Locke, NY.
