    This cherry is delicious, but it doesn't self pollinate very well. My tree is about 10 years old. It has only produced edible cherries in the last two years. Last year is only had about a dozen cherries on it. Maybe that was due to all the rain we had. 2 years ago I set a jar with a sprig of cherry blossoms in the tree. I had more cherries then I knew what to do with. I have another cherry now so hopefully they will cross pollinate this year.
