Question & Answer
The other question is about pollination? Is it self fertile as it is and as it is grafted? From: SANDY BEACH NSW
Because there are 2 different varieties on the same rootstock eg multi grafted they pollinate each other so you do not need another pollinator. It is like buying 2 plants in one.
Hey mate what does multy grafted mean? Is this dwarf stock suitable for large pots? ( 450-600mm)? Looks quite mature how old is if? Do cherries need cooler climate to fruit/flower or is Coffs Harbour region good as SUb tropical? When should this bear fruit? Is it same taste as regular darker cherries? Thanks for your time, mike From: SANDY BEACH NSW
Milti Graft = more than 1 graft on the same rootstock in this case there are 2 different cherry varieties on the same tree. No it is not Dwarf root stock but that is quite a large pot and it will stay smaller via root restriction you should be right. Age perhaps 2-3 years. This is for temperate climates please see specification for climate. Coffs may not be cold enough and it could be marginal. Good question would be do you know anyone that is growing cherries in your area. Bears fruit in 2-3 years. Taste will be great on these. Also another pollinator is not needed as this has both pollinators already.
