I planted the bush cherries next to our house years ago and now they are almost to the roof line. I will prune them this year after they finish their fruit. But they are loaded with blooms and most are not open yet. I know we will have most to drop but if this is any indication, we will have some fruit this year. We have had 20F weather the last 2 nights and again tonight but since they are next to the house, they don't seem to be bothered. They are a little smaller than the pie cherries and look and taste alot like them. I make jam with them and it makes the most terrific jam. Our granddaughters love this jam the best. I have one jar left from last year so hope these do ok this year.
