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,
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.
