Hi, Jim.

A quick online check shows that Nanking are reported as being able to set some fruit without another pollinator but that they producer better with a second plant. I'm wondering if there are some wild cherries in the area that could also be contributing some pollen. So the question is whether your plant has some truly unique properties.

It blooms when nothing else is blooming. Is Bill a NAFEXer?
