I've got a Bali from SLN - this will be its first year to fruit, but it's 
survived longer than any other cherry I've planted here - borers usually 
take them out in their second year.
It's supposed to have a later maturation period than Montmorency/NorthStar, 
etc.
The SLN offering is a tissue-cultured plant, so any suckers that come  up 
are genetic clones.  I've dug and distributed several to friends, and 
noticed, just this weekend, that there are perhaps a dozen new root sprouts 
springing up around it this spring.
