Collect fruit when ripe. To save, clean seeds from pulp and air dry. Sow immediately if sowing in fall. Stratify seeds in moist substrate for 2 weeks under shelter, then cold stratify at 2-5°C (36-41°F) for 60-90 days. Plant early in spring.
Root Prunus species from dormant hardwood, softwood, semi-hardwood, or root cuttings. Root semi-hardwood and softwood cuttings taken in summer.
