In my garden, NanKing Cherry seedlings look and grow like their parents. They are sold as seedlings by the nurseries. They are a species that would be highly suitable for a plant breeding project. They bear fruit quickly, so an individual could aspire to accomplish a lot in a lifetime.

Nankings have been bred in the past, but pretty much all of the cultivars have vanished from the trade. Some may still be available via the USDA germplasm repository, but I haven't checked. Drilea and Orient were two prominent cultivars. I bought a yellow Nanking cherry, and Sandkings are hybrids with Prunus besseyi.
