Cherry Sunburst has just three leading branches on one side and two stumpy ones on the other

They were bought from J Parkers as a 2 yo standard on a colt graft about 2 years ago. They look lop-sided, although they're growing upwards, the two stumpy stems (4", compared to the longer ones at 3') on the other makes it look unappealing. Will they catch up as the 2 years I've had them, they haven't grown any longer. 

This year all stems are covered in flowers - does this mean they will all fruit?

  • Just because a fruit tree has lots of flowers, there is no guarantee you will have any fruit. It will depend to a large extent on the weather and how many insects are around. I have a quince tree which is thick with flowers every year, but the gales and dry weather stop it from setting and holding fruit.
