Black cherries, or Prunus serotina, are native to Indiana, and they have a very conducive climate for the kind of fruit to grow there. Black cherries have been found in every corner of the state.
For Indiana’s central and northern regions, it is best to plant tart varieties such as Montmorency and Meteor. You can feel sure that those varieties will thrive in a cooler climate there, because they prefer a shorter summer and a cooler climate generally.
