I think cherries have rather 'dedicated' buds that are either vegetative or
I don't think they will switch, but maybe there is a dormant vegetative bud
in the area that will activate if you cut it back.

Subject: [NAFEX] Cherry growth buds
Can anyone offer some direction with regards to cherries
With apples, if a shoot ends in a blossom, by picking the individual
flowers off, it is possible to activate a dormant growth bud.
My cherries seem to have the habit of producing short fruiting spurs
where I would like a branch to develop.
Is there a way of converting from fruiting spur to growth?
