Self Pollinating Cherry tree

Has anyone ever grown a self pollinating cherry tree in their fruit garden?
I have lots of fruit trees but no cherries, and not enough room for cross pollinators. What sort of soil do they like?

I've got an early richmond cherry tree and it's doing fine. It's in the front yard and still very small, probably 3 1/2' , just a baby, but we've gotten as many as 15 cherries one year, last year only three??? The hummingbirds love to perch in this lil tree.

Was looking at fruit trees at Walmart- they have a 4x1 cherry tree (4 diffent kinds of cherries grafted in one tree). Most multi grafts will self pollinate, and give you a taste of a few different kinds of fruit of the same type. They are a little more challenging to grow as you need to keep the branches balanced, so one cultivar dosnt overtake. The cost was 24 dollars for the trees, they looked very nice!
