Much like the fruitless tree in the bible its amazing what direct threats can do. I'm not going to tell you it grew four feet in all directions but it did put on a fine healthy crop of leaves, a flourish of blossoms and finally 4 fruit. Yes 4! Four delicious fresh sweet cherries. I ate two, Seamus ate one and a bird got the final one.
Thats not the end of the cherries though. We have five other cherry trees one of which has a fine crop of morello cherries, these are the ones you cook rather than eat. I had a ripe one the other day and Jesus it was so bitter would give sloes a good run for their money.(Three of the five trees are newcomers since last winter and the other dropped all its fruit in the late frosts, the fecking weather has not been good for fruit this year.)
