 Pie cherries grow anywhere in Colorado and are self fruitful!  The western slope and lower elevations on the southern side like Colorado Springs, do wonderful sweet cherries. Its a well know fact that sweet cherries are hardier on the western slope of the Rockies in Colorado, yet have been seen on the plains in elevations below 5500 with plenty of protection and even right here at 6500 ft by creating micro climates and added protection. Sweet Cherries can be a challenge.  Usually you need two different varieties and if grown out of their favorite locations can double the challenge. .If choosing a sweet cherry, think location. Pick a place not prone to early frosts and thaws-a protected location on flat land (a fenced back yard)- and try a thick mulch of wood chips set around the tree with straw and wrap the tree cage after the ground has frozen in fall. In elevations over 6000...Get pie cherries! Just like strawberries-A little sugar makes wonderful.
