They are self fertile - are you after a striped one? Search on youtube - a man has a dwarf one with tiny leaves and a supposed variegated leaf one that to me isnt really that variegated.

Thanks Markmelb,
I will have a look at youtube to see what he has.
My red cherries are beautiful and I didn't want them to cross with a black cherrie if I bought one (I'm picturing my green and purple basil leaves - they don't look so good)

I have the red one, I wonder if you could graft the black onto the red to get both fruits in a small space?

You sure can - i grafted a scion of black beauty onto red and was successful - had only enough warmth to grow 4cm & a few leaves - so graft before a flush in Nov & or Feb - the red leaves have gone almost purple but the black less so.

That sounds amazing Mark! Where did you get the black beauty scion? I'd love to try this, it would be my first graft.

You really need to know someone very close with the Black as time is important - or you can buy one when available to grow in pot when available soon & keep or sell later as would sell easily advanced.
They are tricky to graft - i recommend practice with apples & other deciduous trees to become a successful grafter.i grafted to a 2.5mm section which is below what is regarded for success - its all about accuracy - was a basic wedge graft. Also bagged till it budded.

Self fertile and the blacks and reds are very similar with black seeds throwing to red quite often.Lolita and Brazilian orange which is a natural wild form are two more glamorous and eagerly sought varieties.
