    Not all cherry trees are the fruiting type as such. Many are mainly ornamental. If you want a fruiting variety, you'd need to look for that specifically. 
    Stella is the most commonly available one, but there are quite a few.  :)

    Most will need warmer conditions to grow and reliably fruit too, so check that your climate and conditions are suitable. Morello is the exception  :)
    It's a place where beautiful isn't enough of a word....

    It's also worth knowing that types grown specifically for fruit tend to have a much less attractive growth habit compared to ornamental cherry trees and they usually need careful pruning/training in the early years to grow into an attractive shape, something which isn't very easy tbh.
    A trowel in the hand is worth a thousand lost under a bush.

    @roshnimistry1 it has fruited - it seems to be increasing each year, either last year or the year before it had three cherries!  This year probably about 25.
  • @Crazybeelady wow, that's great :) thank you!
