sour cherry trees
Hi Helen. The best tart cherries to plant here in Kentucky are Montmorency, Danube, Surefire, or North Star. Fall is the best time to plant.
I would choose a semi dwarf variety. This would give you some height but if managed well would still be shorter than a full size tree.
I am not sure where you might find this type of tree locally. If you would like to call me to discuss, my number is 859-623-4072. or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
