I wanted to make this thread to help me keep track of and document my cherry trees.

Hopefully it can be helpful to others also!

This is a cherry tree that has been growing pretty well in our warm climate.

It is a little taller than me, and I hope to get the first harvest of cherries next year!

This cherry tree is about 3 years old.

Cherries are rare in our area due to the heat and humidity, but this cherry is a vigorous grower and has been growing really well here so far!

I thought it was going to produce some fruit this year, but it didn't end up producing any this year. I hope to get the first harvest of cherries next year though!

Here's a video with more information about our the cherry.

It's been a little more susceptible to some slight disease issues here in the past, but it has battled through them well and those few cases have decreased more and more as it has gotten older and stronger.

It has been putting on a lot of new growth this year and growing well!
