I was very interested when Shoe mentioned he had a nanking cherry bush. I've wanted to try those for years. Are they "real" cherries, just like those off the trees? How much can one bush produce? Are the ones they call "sand cherry" any good?
Here where the birds are entirely too interested in cherries, it would be great to have something small enough to protect fairly easily.
Any answers would be greatly appreciated.

Sorry Skye...just came across this thread.

I haven't seen a cherry yet (too soon I suppose).

Will report back with real info as soon as I see some good results!

Hang in there!

I was hoping for an answer too! I just planted a couple weeks ago. I figure the birds can have them and I'll plant a tree or two.

Maybe I should plant a few and experiment along with everyone else.
