I live is Southern Calif.; during the summer the heat can reach 100 degrees plus - would I be able to have a cherry tree survive here? Thank you for your time.

In order to produce fruit, cherry trees need a minimum of 8 weeks of winter chill where the temperatures remain below 45F. Southern California normally receives less than this, so you might want to choose another type of fruit tree for your yard. Apricot and plum do especially well in your gardening region. Best wishes with your landscape!
