I have had the tree for several years. Although I have had difficulty growing cherry trees, this tree has performed well to date. I now have some cherries and hopefully will beat the birds to them. I just ordered my second Whitegold Sweet Cherry.

This was a gift to my Sister in Tennessee. I chose it after reading comments on gardening forums about what sweet cherries do well in Tennessee. The forums said this tree is very disease resistant and does well in this area, as does the Blackgold Sweet Cherry.

Disease resistant and self pollinating. Mature size is manageable. Plus, cherry pie is one of my favorites.

Beautiful bush
I purchased this cherry tree/bush last year to replace one that I had purchased from another catalog that did not live. I don't know if this one will produce anything this year and I don't expect it to. It is very pretty with lots of flowers on it. I'm really enjoying it with or without fruit. It is very healthy and has grown a lot in the past year.

Whitegold cherry
Since this is my first year of planting this cherry tree, all I can say at this time that it is doing well even with the hot weather and no or not much rain. It looks happy and healthy. Hopefully, by next year, I'll be able to report more on this tree.
