“Russian Saskatchewan” is a very short dwarf variety that came from Russia originally, but was grown for years as a family heirloom in Saskatchewan. Originally, I thought that this was a micro-dwarf variety and planted it in a 1 gallon pot with my other micro varieties. It grew taller than the others, however, and I used small and thin bamboo sticks to support the vertical growth, which stopped at about 18 inches tall. The sizable fruit was a very good tradeoff for the extra height of the plant, however. These are red, round saladettes, not cherries. Without overwatering during ripening, the fruits were juicy, with a sweet and smooth flavor.
