    I bought this at Home Depot last year for $15, end of season sale. Its a combo cherry tree, supposed to have different varieties grafted on to it. It has several cherries on it, not ripe yet, birds starting to gnaw on them.

    I do hope you can keep the birds away long enough to tell how the fruit is.Its a cute little tree and cherry's are a yummy fruit.

    Hi,
    your cherries are going good, but be alert from the birds.

    My husband loves cherries. I like them too but rarely get a chance to eat them before he finishes them off.

    Will hanging metal flasher things from the branches scare off the birds?

    Yes, its a cute tree and I was intrigued by the label that says its a combo and has more than one cherry variety, though it didn't specify what types I have. I sure hope they're not sour cherries! Just happened to spot it late last summer while at Home Depot when I got bored trailing after my husband and headed to the garden centre. I bought several fruit trees that were on for half price or lower. Haven't seen this type of tree at Home Depot this summer.
