<< < (3/3)

spaugh:
my house is 16 miles inland 1150ft elevation in the hot part of san diego county.  Cherries are not a problem here.  Another mwmber on this forum I know lives nearby in Poway also had tons of cherries on his minnie royal, royal lee.

Monday we hit 108. All the cherries in our area have responded in kind and I swear they grew a foot overnight.

I grafted some cherries I got from you on my pluot and my 4 in 1 cherry last year and they are producing like mad already, thought they have a tendency to create 'double' cherries.

Do you sell scions or know a good place to buy them? Having been trying to find good lowchill stonefruit for socal.

So cal Maybe you should get a few native cherry seeds eventually graft yours onto them.

Yes I do sell lots of low chil stone fruit I have all the good ones.  It's best to do the grafting in January or February.  If you ask me at that time I will have them.
