That makes sense, Jim. I suppose that they do not generally grow out
tissue-cultured plants in the field for a season, but sell them to their
Canadian customers right out of the greenhouse.
Also, the discussion about whether the two new selections might be
susceptible to foliage diseases in wetter climates than Saskatchewan's
might have some validity also. Here in Minnesota, my Evans cherry
sometimes gets mildew after extended periods of humid weather and it
probably wouldn't in the drier climate of Saskatchewan or Alberta. --

The reason DNA Gardens cannot ship the U of Sask. Cherries until 2007
is because they are tissue cultured plants in 2006. Canadian nurseries
cannot export live (green/growing) plant material to the United States;
only dormant material is allowed across the border. So, if one of us
were to buy the 125, or more, plants in 2006, DNA Gardens would set
aside that number from Canadian sales, allow them to go dormant and
ship in 2007.

Jim, thanks for taking the initiative on this. I also would spring for
5 trees of each cultivar. Is the reason DNA Gardens would not be able
to ship plants until 2007 because it would take a long time to process
the paperwork? -- Sam Brungardt, St. Paul, Minn.
