A few years ago Lucky sent me a couple of Evans sprouts, and the slower one bloomed this year for the first time and has some fruit on it.  That tree has looked good ever since it was planted, and has made a sucker that's almost as big as it is.  The other one pined and suffered from thread blight, it bloomed young but the #%&*! carpenter ants would pick all the stigmas out, same as they did to my flowering quince this year.  (Yes, the one mild spring and that's when I find out God's backup plan for making sure I don't get any quinces)   I cut the early blooming tree back to a stub but now that I know about thread blight I am glad to let it come back out.  Sprayed copper this spring in hopes of stopping the stuff which was on an apple, a pear, a plum... it likes everything.  Anyway I am particularly pleased to have the Evans cherry because I haven't seen morello cherries before.  The leaves are shinier than the amarelle I have, and they have an interesting waxy feel to them.    Donna
