Cherries are a practical fruit for home orchards where climate and soil conditions are suitable. Once established, they require little maintenance and are reliable producers. They are best adapted to areas where summers are moderately cool. The trees dislike high humidity. They are usually the last fruit to bloom and first to ripen. Most varieties require a pollenizer. Sweet cherries can reach 25-30 feet tall in deep soils. Sensitive to wet, tight soils. Susceptible to birds, brown rot, and bacterial canker. The trees are 2 years old and you can expect to harvest 4th or 5th year. On Colt rootstock which performs well in heavy soils, and is apparently resistant to bacterial canker. Relatively tolerant of wet soils (but good drainage still required). Trees begin bearing at young age. Unpruned, trees on Colt reach 85% of standard (about 28-32'). By pruning, you can keep your tree to any size.
