While sweet cherries are savored by everyone for their meaty, rich and juicy flesh, they are more difficult to grow without synthetic sprays than sour cherries. The fruit is prone to brown rot, often starting on split fruits. Insect pests (and birds) are also drawn to the fruitlets. Sweet cherries in southern IN sometimes miss a crop from blooming too early and having the blossoms killed by heavy frost. Still, they are somewhat easier than apples and plums, similar in ease of growing to peaches. We have sought varieties and rootstocks that will give you the best chance of success in our region.
