I have had excellent results with Jan, Joy, and Joel here in Montana.  The fruit quality on Joy is not as good as the other 2.  Joel has the best fruit, is supposed to be self-pollenizing but is less vigorous.

  The Meader varieties, Jan, Joy, and Joelle, are actually species of plums and are graft compatible on plum stocks like St. Julian. Grow a stock 5 or 6 feet tall and graft the bush cherries on the top like a tree rose and you may get fruit. That puts them up where air circulation reduces disease on the blossoms.
