NOT. These are not cherries at all. See the responses below, in which you can see photos of real Uminekos. Discussion has now turned into Avium understock sprouts. The posting was: The Uminekos in the west end of Vancouver are quite small and very upright, so they don’t say “cherry” the way most of the other cultivars do. They have small single white blossoms set among the fully opened roundish green leaves. The centres seem to give a red impression, except in one of my photos, and the bark seems to have less prominent horizontal stripes and even more of a vertical effect (which is what gives me niggling doubts). These photos are from March 29 and April 7, 2007.
