Answer: The Nanking cherry is native to Asia and can be grown as a hedge, so it might be the plant you're looking for. The fruit is tart, about 1/2 inch in diameter, and can be eaten fresh or used in pies and jellies. You'll need two different cherries for pollination. In your growing region, I'd suggest Nanking and Lee's Select, or Evan's Sour Cherry. All are available from Raintree Nursery, 391 Butts Rd., Morton, WA 98356. Phone (360) 496-6400.
