It is difficult to grow cherries in the climate of Phoenix, AZ, but some people have had luck with sour cherries, Hollyleaf Cherry, and Cherry of the Rio Grande (not a true cherry but produces a cherry-like fruit). Also look for low chill varieties (varieties that don’t need as many cold hours in winter as the typical cherry variety; see the article below). It is recommended to plant the tree in an area that gets partial shade to protect the tree from the extremes of heat. Also, check the pH preference of your chosen variety and amend the soil accordingly. I think the best time to plant would be in fall, so the tree can become better established before the summer heat.
