Abstract

In 2009, a sweet cherry tree cultivar trial was established to evaluate the suitability of new varieties for the home gardener in the Muscatine Island region. Seven varieties grafted onto Gisela® 5 rootstocks were planted in spring 2009. Gisela® 5 rootstock was chosen for its dwarfing ability (roughly 50 percent of Mazzard), virus resistance, and cold hardiness.
