This is my first summer in my new home.
In my garden, is a magnificent cherry tree. I've watched a full display
of blossom........but no cherries are being produced!
I'm wondering why this would be......
Among stone fruits (cherry, peach, plum, apricot), the trees with the
nicest show of flowers are ornamental and have no fruit. But there are
a few peach varieties that are both ornamental and fruiting.

Some species are ornamental and don't fruit.
Some fruiting species need to be pollinated, so you need another tree in
the neighborhood, and some bees. Around here bees seem to be in short
supply, but enough showed up in my yard to do the job.
We just finished harvesting both our sweet and sour cherries; had a good
crop. But after pitting them my hands are stained red.
