Macrounutrients (protein, moisture, ash, dietary fiber), vitamin E, Vitamin C, mineral elements (K, Ca, Mg, Zn, Fe, Mn), six soluble sugars (fructose, glucose, sucrose, galactose, xylose, arabinose) and four organic acids (oxalic, succinic, tartaric, malic acid) were studied in five varieties of Chinese dwarf cherry (Cerasus humilis (Bge.) Sok) for the first time. The results indicated that Chinese dwarf cherry offers a rich source of minerals, especially Ca and Fe, with the Ca content was 8-10 times that of apples, and K content was 5-20 times that of apples. In addition, Chinese dwarf cherry was also a provider of vitamin C, sucrose, and malic acid. Our result provides a theoretical basis for the comprehensive utilization and development of Chinese dwarf cherry.
