Cherry trees produce vivid displays of cloudy white blossom in early spring, followed by a flush of late summer fruit.
Which Cherry Variety Should I Choose?
For a spread of cherries that covers the whole cropping season, we recommend:
When it comes to sour cooking cherries, there "is only one": Morello (actually there are several, but it really is the best).
Morello is the only cherry that will crop reasonably well in the shade.
Lapins Cherokee is a sweet cherry, not sour, but is also excellent for cooking.
Do all cherry trees have edible fruit?
No, only the sweet and sour cherry varieties listed in this section have fruit that humans would want to eat.
