mIEKAL, have you had any indication that Nanking cherry plants from some sources produce better seedlings than from others, especially from the point of view of size and usefulness of the fruit?

I wonder if some nurseries sell plants of seedling lines that have been selected for the fruit while others sell unselected plants. I seem to recall that in the past one or more nurseries on the Canadian Prairies claimed to sell seedling plants from selected lines though I've forgotten which.

seed from my own various plantings.
