I have a lapin cherry tree (now in its 5th year). Unfortunately, I'm getting little yield of cherries. Any suggestions? I line in SE Michigan. Thx
Jeff P on Jun 15, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Late frost can zap tender fruit buds, which may be a concern in your area. If not, given the age of your cherry tree, fruit production should increase after it's yielded its first crops. If beneficials and pollen movers (bees) are not visiting your tree when it's in bloom, you can help by manually moving pollen between flowers (using a small paintbrush or cotton swab). If you have room for another variety of sweet cherry tree, cross-pollination between them should also help to boost yields. If birds are eating your fruit before you can harvest, netting is highly recommended.
