Husband wanted sour cherry tree, probably to feed neighborhood birds, if my past experience counts for anything.

Good strong tree
Overwintered well, came out strong in spring. In the 2nd year now and it is really filling out nicely - looking forward to getting some cherries in a year or two. Looks great!

Fianally
Unfortunately it took far longer for the trees to show signs of life that I would have expected but now in the second year the tree is doing well and, hopefully, there will be fruit, if not next year, then the year after although there were a small number of blossoms this spring. Over all I am pleased with the tree.

Zone 4
Unfortunately, most of the trees I have purchased from you have not survived the winter here in Wisconsin. I live in Zone 4. I recommend you do not list any of your trees for zone 4 of less. They may do well other places. I have had very limited success.
Thank you.
