I have 2 large Romeo dwarf Cherry Trees and a Carmine Jewel dwarf Cherry planted in a row. They have been there for several years. Each year they are loaded with blossoms, but the Romeos basically set zero fruit and the Carmine sets a handful.

Since these are suppose to be self pollinating, what else could be the problem? It's so disappointing to see them loaded with blooms each year and never get fruit.

They don't flower at the same time is the problem.
NOT A EXPERT! Just a grow worm! I never met a plant I didn’t love.✌

The timing should not matter if they are self fruitful.

Actually they do flower at the same time, but they are both suppose to be self pollinating anyways.

I've searched for an answer with no success, fingers crossed someone here has a clue. Thanks.

Tell us about your cultural and maintenance practices. Do you ever spray for any pests or diseases? A chronology of your annual care regarding these trees may bear fruit - if I'm allowed a pun.

Do you have any photographs of these plants to share? Current pictures are fine, as well as any you might have of when these trees have flowered.

Thanks John, I'll look for photos when they are in bloom, I swear I took some! I'll take photos of them as of today later.

I do not spray, and not have fertilized since the plants are so robust and I could find no information on what to use. The only information I have found is that that they may benefit from pruning which I have never done.

I thought these were very low maintenance plants ... maybe not. They are low maintenance if all you want is a flowering landscape shrub.

I'll post pictures by the end of the day .... back to outdoor projects while we have a cool day.

Include closeups of where the flowers had been on the branches, as well as whole plant images and contextual information.

I can't find the photos of the bushes in bloom, I may have deleted them accidentally.

Here are photos of the bushes today. The one closest to the barn is a "Carmine Jewel", and the next two are the "Romeo"

They certainly look healthy enough!
