[NAFEX] evans-bali cherry

For all its worth, I have an Evans tree (more like a big bush) sending lots 
of suckers. I transplanted the suckers and now the suckers are producing 
fruits and I cannot tell the difference between the original Evans cherries 
and the fruit produced on the suckers...

Transplanting the suckers would appear to be a practical way of reproducing 
this Evans cherry tree, which would become quite invasive otherwise... I do 
not understand the connection evans-bali, maybe it was explained and I just 
missed it...

Evans trees are unfortunately quite susceptible to gummose, an infection 
oozing orange sap which affects wild cherry trees such as prunus 
pensylvanica in this area... so I transplant suckers suspecting that the 
original tree won't last very long. The cherries are delectable, the issue 
being to get to them before the birds...

It's possible your seedlings will be nice trees, but they won't be the 
original Bali. The own-rooted Bali trees nurseries sell are from tissue 
culture, not seeds.

Planted five Bali cherry trees last year. Only one made it through
the winter. I picked a cup of cherries off it today. I'll try to
sprout the seed and plant on own root. Should be more hardy then on
the Evans-Bali grafted trees. I read the Bali grafted cherries are
not really hardy in cold winters.
