Proper care for sour cherry trees and bushes.
My Northstar is in it second year of fruiting. The Evans and 6 Carmine Jewels are still a year away from fruiting.
All have beautiful leaves and are disease free. Last year, about 1/2 of them had aphids but they were easy to eliminate. The tiny amount of cherries on the Northstar seemed to have a bug entry indented spot on them.
This year, I'd like to eat some of the cherries. They are currently about the size of a large pea. What kinds of bugs like sour cherries in our zones and how are they stopped?
Do I need to worry about diseases? I did spray Immunox Plus just 1 time at the end of the bloom.
