Cherry Nectar Without Flowers

I learned something new today. My cherry trees were getting swarmed with bees and yellowjackets. They seemed to be nibbling at the red nodules below each leaf. Turns out Cherry trees provide nectar to beneficials to keep them around! :smiley:


I’ve seen those on my cherry tree but wasn’t sure what they were. Interesting.

I’ve seen the same on my stella cherry. The bees were searching these out instead of the blooms.

that qualifies as a fun fact!
