Sweet Cherries are wildly popular, but in most areas north of zone 5, you’ll only ever taste those cherries if they’ve been trucked in to the local supermarket.

Have other questions about growing sweet cherries in zones 4 and colder? I highly recommend checking out articles from ag-extension offices in cold-weather states. There are multiple growing guides online; Michigan State University has a great summary of sweet cherries for the eastern USA, for starters, and New York’s Cornell University has several publications (including a nice writeup including sweet cherries suited and NOT suited for cold gardening zones).

There’s a lot of information out there, so don’t give up!
