Has anyone grown these bush cherries?
I'm very intrigued the idea of bush cherries, thinking that I could protect the fruit from birds more easily than I could cherries on a tree. Taste and disease resistance have to be considered though. Also, chill. I think the first two require less chill than the later two. Has anyone tried these? If so, what did you think of them?
SK Carmine Jewel Â Prunus cerasus X Prunus fruiticosa
Ripens mid July to mid August.
SK Crimson Passion Â Prunus cerasus X Prunus fruiticosa
Excellent fresh eating cherry. Ripens in late August.
"Joy" Bush Cherry Â Prunus japonica X Prunus jacquemontii

"Joel" Bush Cherry Â Prunus japonica X Prunus jacquemontii
"Brother" seedling to Joy. Self-fertile.
BTW - I pulled this text from a website and edited it. If anyone wants the source, please let me know. I think that Joy, Joel and a companion Jan are sold by more than one place.
