    You know, I’ve ordered from Chukar Cherries in the past, and just never quite made the connection between… all those cherries and… cherry trees. Are these fruit bearing, or are they ornamental? We have Bradford pears blooming all over just now, but as far as I know they don’t produce any fruit.

    I sense a gap in my knowledge, here.

      Most of these trees are Yoshino cherries. Here is what Walter Reeves says on the internet: ‘Yoshino’ fruits are edible, but only birds and small animals enjoy consuming them. The pit (seed) is huge in comparison to the flesh. Not all trees produce fruit, and even if they do, not every year. ‘Yoshino’ cherry is the elegant tree that graces the Tidal Basin in Washington, DC each year, as well as being the star attraction of the Cherry Blossom Festival in Macon every March.
