Master Gardeners Q&a | David Goforth: Cherries need good soil
Q. Can you give me some information on growing cherries? I have a Stella planted here in Cabarrus County, and most years I am eating some. It would be a commercial failure, but I have enjoyed it as much as I would have enjoyed a crape myrtle or a dogwood planted in my yard.
The main problem seems to be when the root system gets hot and wet, so you need to put it on the best soils.
Most cherries are also short-lived, compared to some of the other things we can plant.
I also had a sour cherry for numerous years, and most years it produced. 2003 was too rainy, and one year there was a late frost, although sour cherries are more consistent than peaches. Read more

I once dated a cherry, but she turned out to not be a cherry.
