Szafer cornelian cherry trees

Cornus mas

Szafer is a mid / late season Cornelian cherry. The fruits ripen over a long period, usually starting in late August and continuing into September.

This is one of the sweeter varieties of Cornus mas, with quite a high sugar content, and is pleasant for eating fresh as well as cooking with.

Please note these plants are not certified bio / organic, although they are ideal for growing in an organic regime as they tend not to suffer from pests or diseases.

Growing and Training

Dublany is not self-fertile, we recommend you plant another different Cornelian cherry variety with a different fruit colour nearby.

Dublany is very easy to grow, but do not allow the tree to dry out over the summer - regular watering is needed.
