When my parents moved into our house, there were 2 cherry trees in the back yard. My granddad, who comes from a long line of farmers, identified them as black tartarians. They produced the most amazing cherries for all the years my parents lived here and made the best jam ever! Now that I've moved into the house and the trees are dying back (they are probably over 30 years old) I have got to replace them. It wouldn't be the same around here without them.

What is wrong with my black tartarian cherry tree, it has never bloomed not even a bud?
Susan V on Mar 27, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Likely your problem is chilling hours. Look up how many your area receives on average each year, think if this year has been colder shorter or longer. Black Tartarian is rated 700-800 hours, but I've seen some ratings higher too. If you live in the south think about getting a different variety so it will fruit!
