Cherry trees look fantastic in spring and providing you can keep the birds from the cherries the fruit is also wonderful. It is a fast and vigorous and large tree, but can be grown in a large pot as this one is. The choice if variety is important. I wondered why the birds did not strip this tree for about three years. The cherries were large red and plump, but tasted sharp. After looking up the variety I found it was a cooking variety. One benifit of growing it in a pot is that it is easier to keep the birds away from the fruit..
