Thank you. I swear I felt like the only person to be disappointed by nanking cherries. I purchased about half a dozen, waited until all of them had fruited and promptly ripped them out (which was about 5 years after having planted them). I had some from Henry Field's and some from somewhere else
I found them tiny, practically all pit and blueberry sized. They were much more tart than my red currants (or the cherry trees which replaced them)
I could have never imagined picking and pitting enough of them to make even an individual sized pie.
These were the first producing fruit plants I had ever ripped out. They were pretty in bloom, but even my kids found them too much trouble. Hansen's bush cherry met a similar fate (though it also had disease problems that the nankings didn't have)
