Rodney, I suspect that Raintree will sell Black Gold and White Gold again.
I think that they sold of Black Gold last spring, because they only listed
White Gold in their fall catalog (being a white cherry, it may not have sold
as well as Black Gold).
I have my doubts, though, whether either Black Gold or White Gold will do
well in zone 3. Perhaps the warmer half of Zone 4 would be okay.
Another source of these two new cherries is J.W. Jung Seed Co., 335 S. High
St., Randolph, WI 53957--0001 (phone 1-800-247-5864). or go to
www.jungseed.com . I've been doing business with this firm for a number of
years and they are very reliable and service-oriented.--Sam Brungardt, St.
