POTD - Michigan Cherries

POTD - Michigan Cherries

My sister and her husband planted a cherry tree a few years ago.  She told me that it was literally a four foot tall stick when they planted it.  They had no idea if it was ever going to produce cherries but last year they did see a couple of them.  This year the tree is covered with cherries.  We picked a few of them to test and boy oh boy are they tart!!  They are most certainly pie cherries as those puppies need some sugar.

Oh do I miss Michigan cherries! I am not surprised that Alison can make a 4 foot stick produce fruit!!! She is a wonder!

You got me again, this photo is perfect. How wonderful to have a tree like that in their yard.
