Hi -

Does anyone have a spare sapling of a Meteor cherry they'd like to trade, or send for postage?? OR do you know if you can grow it from seeds of the cherry?

They don't grow true from seed, and have to be grafted.

I do have two trees and you could have scionwood from them this fall if you want to get a suitable rootstock and graft them.

I also have a little Evans cherry in a small pot which you could have. They grow on their own roots and are quite similar to Meteor. Like Meteor, they're cold hardy, amarelle-type cherries. Ours started to mature on July 13 this year, one day after Meteor. Fruit quality is similar. They're supposed to have higher yields, but haven't yet for us.
