Have tried several other cherry varieties for my zone 5B and they have all died within three years, due to harsh weather conditions. This far out on the plains I think we have more of a zone 4 than 5B. This cherry is rated zone 4.

best pie cherry of all

I have grown this one before and my current tree is getting quite old and I want to be sure to always have my own pie cherries. So much better that pies with canned ones!

BEST ANSWER: The blossoms are white. The fruit is excellent.
Is the Supreme Dwarf likely to fruit sooner?
Betty T on Feb 26, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Not sure what the comparison is -- sooner than standard trees, perhaps?
I purchased and planted several North Star Cherry trees in 2012, and they
produced a scattered number of cherries for the first time in Spring 2015 (3 years after planting).
I also have a 25-year old North Star Cherry tree which has produced a wonderful crop every year for the past 20+ years--without any type of spraying or chemicals. Just composted leaf mulch, around the base. Very nice trees.

I don't know yet.
This is my third North Star cherry. My first lasted many years and produced abundantly. My second bore a few fruits after 4 or 5 years and then died. I hope my third one does as well as the first, but will not know for a few more years.

Healthy tree in a harsh environment
The tree is getting leaves and looks great. Too early to tell if will have fruit but I amazed that it has survived the cold MT winter then the hot summer days we had. Hoping for the best will update as tree matures.

Looking forward to pie!
The tree is doing very well even though it gets only 1/2 day sun and is in a container. It bloomed this year!
