Thanks much Lon, 
After I sent that message I said to myself "oops, they'll probably 
think that I mean the size of the bushes when I meant size of the 
FRUITS."  Are they better than say, Nanking for flesh volume? Do they 
have as much flesh as a Montmorency? 
Good to know though that they taste just like sour cherries. Seems 
weird, though, being different species.
