  1. I’ll be trying Blondkopfchen cherries this year. I wanted a non-hybrid so I could save the seeds if I liked it. We’ll see how it turns out.

    • Hey Bill – it’s funny you should mention that variety. Someone over on the Facebook mentioned it as well. I had never heard of it before today, but am very interested in seeing how it produces and tastes!
