“Rosy Cheeks” is an original creation by Bunny Hop Seeds, a sister line to Lumos. The actual cross was made by a love-struck and ambitious little bee, but I do know that the cross was Coyote x Rose Quartz Multiflora. This event took place in spring 2014. With the help of two wonderful friends, I discovered the cross in 2015, and got a jump start on growing segregates to stability.
This segregate has remained the same for three generations, and these seeds should be F5 generation.
I named these fat pink cherries “Rosy Cheeks,” because they reminded me of a little girl’s chubby cheeks glowing rosy from cold or exertion. Cute little pinchable cheeks. The fruits are larger than Coyote or Lumos. The flavor does have the somewhat muscat sweetness of Coyote, which is a big plus in my book. The growth habit of the plant is more restrained than that of Coyote. It produces more abundantly than Lumos or Rose Quartz Multiflora (multifloras do not set fruit in all blooms in my climate) and I will continue to grow it for the flavor alone.
