Cherry Trees

A cherry tree will bear abundant crops of mouthwatering cherries, and serve as a beautiful standout in any landscape during cherry blossom time. We grow two types of cherry trees. Sour cherry trees 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 jams. Sweet cherry trees produce sweet cherries that are delicious when picked fresh and popped in your mouth like candy. These cherries make great snacks for you or the kids.

Buyer's Guide

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

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 treessour varieties mature to be about 8-10' tall and wide, and sweet varieties mature to be about 12-14' tall and wide. Even though they are smaller, they produce an abundance of full-size fruit.
  • Semi-dwarf cherry treessour varieties mature to be about 12-15' tall and wide, and sweet varieties mature to be about 15-18' tall and wide. They offer maximum fruit yield per square foot.

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.
