I grow Pioneer here along with several other named selections. Of them all, Pioneer produces the least amount of fruit. For me, Elegant has the best flavored fruit and started production much earlier than the others. I do have problems keeping them alive, having lost two Elegant during the winters in zone 5. Not sure what the issue may be but hardiness could be the issue. Pioneer produced in the year following its initial blooming. Pioneer requires some bletting before best taste, but Elegant was good right off the tree. No experience with Jubulee.

I planted one
cornelian cherry (cornus mas) about 5 or 6 years ago (Jubilee, I think.
Maybe Pioneer.) with the idea that I would plant more if I liked the
fruit. So far, it hasn't fruited. Either it's not actually
self-fertile as reported, or possibly I'm too far north to get fruit, although
the last several years there have been no freezes during or after it
bloomed. I did notice (after planting the tree) that Lee Rich mentioned in
his book that they woudn't bear fruit north of zone 5. I am in southern
MN, zone 4. I'm wondering if anyone else in zones 3 or 4 has had any
success getting fruit from cornus mas. And if so, what
