I am growing just Joel.  The two plants I have are quite productive for their
size (they are still about 2' tall and have been fruiting for 3 years) and am
quite happy with them in zone 5b.  Mid to late summer cherries without
problems.  Last year I had some pre-mature fruit drop, but I was growing them
dry and forgot to water a couple of times, which I believe was the cause.

I thought I remembered a discussion about bush cherries a while back, but
can't find it (other than some mentions about Carmine Jewel).  What can
anyone tell me about Joy, Jan, and Joel bush cherries (Prunus japonica x

Sarah, to your "Ummmm, yes please!" Jelly making without boiling works best
when (powdered) pectin is thoroughly mixed with the sugar before being added
to the (unboiled) fruit. Liquid pectin works too. If foaming is a problem,
add a spoonful of butter - coffee creamer works too.

A few of we maple syrupers were using coffee creamer to knock down the
foam in a syrup pan before someone rebottled it and charged a hefty price
