Thinking about trying the low chill cherry variety available from the royal lee and the Minnie lee. Developed in Modesto ca, and producing Cherries in zone 8 and 9 with 200 chill hour requirements. Has anybody tried these yet? I'm intrigued because I grew up in zone 4 high altitude desert and loved cherry trees growing up.

I doubt seriously Canyon Lake will get the chill hours a cherry needs, yup, Hondo Valley in NM taught me about cherries and my love of them. Plus, you have that caliche caprock thing going 8 and 9 in Cali is a bit farther north than you would expect.
So many roads to take, choices to make, and laughs to share!

We've got the native escarpment black cherry trees, which is favored by some wildlife. Not a good place here for edible cherries for people, if that is what you want. Sorry.
