Planting Information

These luscious fruit are delicious eaten fresh as well used in many recipes for baking,  jams, ice cream, candies, wine and more. An excellent source of Vitamin C and antioxidants, and many people swear by the gout relieving properties of the darker cherry varieties.

Cherry trees offer a spectacular show of blooms in the spring that mature quickly to luscious red fruit in the early to mid summer. Fall color can range from yellow to orange-red. The trees should be planted in a sunny location with well drained soil. Soil pH needs to be at least 7.0, so most soils will need added lime. The cherries we offer are noted as needing cross pollination or self-pollinating , but will set a better crop with another variety; sweet with sweet, tart with tart. Prune to open vase shape in early spring before buds begin to break. In general, treat the cherry tree like a plum tree. All varieties are on standard rootstock because we have not found a reliable dwarf rootstock that is long lived. A more dwarf size can be maintained with proper pruning.
