Ask a Question
  • I live in mendocino county where the temperature is consistently between 50 and 60 degrees, will this cherry tree grow here?

    Do you mean the winter temps are between 50 and 60 degrees? If so this is a low-chill variety of cherry, so it needs to be below 45 degrees for 400-500 hours each winter. So if it gets cold enough at night, you should be good to go. These trees are from Modesto, so depending on where you are it should produce just fine.
