Description of Vega Trees & Cherries:
Vega is a really big, sweet cherry with a succulent, pale centre and red and gold skin.
Possibly due to its large size, birds don't seem to as interested in this variety as they are in most other cherries, but we still advise you to cover your trees with a net when the fruit are ripening.

Growing Vega Cherry Trees:
Rich soil is important - dig in plenty of good manure and compost before planting.

The more sun your trees get the better your crops will be.
Cherry trees are targets for birds, so netting them is a good idea.
