In the 1980s the now defunct Beaverlodge Nursery in Alberta offered two clones of western sand cherry Prunus besseyi, "Hans" and "Fritz" (two for pollination). I understand they had been selected for the fruit.
Just possibly the people at the University of Saskatchewan fruit program might have them or know of them.

Brian Smith from UW - River Falls has convinced me try Prunus Besseyi which he is having a lot of luck with. I've located some generic nursery seed, I hoping some day to get some of his selected seeds.
