I've chosen these varieties for their exceptional flavour and their international renown as outstanding fruits. This year I have three sweet cherry varieties and two tart cherry varieties. All are self-fertile.
These are all grafted onto Krymsk 6 rootstock, which I chose for a few key reasons:
they produce semi-dwarf trees: big cherry trees are beautiful, but if not kept small with annual pruning they easily outgrow our reach, leaving the majority for the birds & squirrels (not necesarily a bad thing, but I find most people would prefer to eat at least some of the cherries in their yard);
they are precocious: trees will produce fruit sooner than those grafted onto full-size rootstocks;
lastly, Krymsk 6 rootstock tolerate stresses like high soil temperatures, periods of drought, and compaction.
Tree grades: All our trees have had a strong season of growth and are high-quality, top-grade trees. All are sold bare root, while dormant. For more information see theGeneral nursery informationpage.
