Cherry Trees

A cherry tree will bear abundant crops of mouthwatering cherries, and serve as a beautiful standout in any landscape during spring’s cherry blossom season. We grow two types of cherry trees: Sour cherry trees, which produce tangy pie cherries that are ideal for cooking and baking. These tart cherries are perfect for any number of recipes, including pies, cobblers and juices. Sweet cherry trees are the second type, which produce familiar sweet cherries and are exceptionally delicious when picked fresh and popped in your mouth like candy. These cherries make great fresh or dried snacks. Within our cherry tree selection, you will also find heirloom cherry trees — antique cherry varieties that have withstood the tests of time. Plant a cherry tree and grow a wonderful fruit that people have been enjoying for generations.

To ensure your growing success and satisfaction, there are a few things to consider when you buy a cherry tree.

Sub-categories

Mature Tree Size

Pick the right size tree for your available space. When our cherry trees mature, they will be one of these sizes:

  • Dwarf cherry trees — mature to be about 8-14' tall and wide. Even though they are smaller, they produce an abundance of full-size fruit.
  • Semi-dwarf cherry trees — mature to be about 12-18' tall and wide. They offer maximum fruit yield per square foot.
  • Standard cherry trees — mature to be about 18-25’ tall and wide. They are perfect if you want a multi- purpose shade tree.

Zone Compatibility

Your climate plays an important role in whether a cherry tree will be successful. Make sure the hardiness zone range of the tree you choose includes your area.

Soil Drainage

Make sure your cherry tree’s root system will have adequate drainage. If your soil is heavy and holds water, it could cause complications. Be sure to choose your planting site wisely.

Proper Pollination

Most of the cherries we grow are self-pollinating cherry trees, but we still recommend planting another cherry variety in your yard for optimum fruit production.

For cherry trees that do require pollination by a different variety, be sure to check the description of your tree to see which pollinators our experts recommend. Often, the absence of proper pollination is why trees produce poorly or don’t bear fruit.

Shipping Information

Our cherry trees will be shipped to you as bare-root trees (without soil) to ensure good contact with your garden soil. These young trees arrive in a dormant (resting) state and will spring to life soon after planting. They are about 3-4' tall with 3/8" or larger trunk diameter when shipped.

Upgrade Option

If you would like a head start on growing a cherry tree, upgrade to one of our Stark Supreme Trees®. They are about 4-5' tall with 5/8" or larger trunk diameter when shipped to you.
