Description

A Stark Bro's Exclusive!

Best pollinators: any other sweet cherry variety.

Bird resistant? Most of my current cherries are eaten by birds.
Wesley C on Apr 11, 2016
I am hoping that the level of salicylates is lower in these cherries. I won't know until I try them, and I have never seen these in the store. I have another cherry tree that should pollinate these that if the birds leave any cherries, I will sell the fruit.

If this is cold hardy to -30 why would it not be OK for zone 4b?
Jack S on Feb 24, 2016
BEST ANSWER: While the tree may survive extreme temperatures on occasion, the overall climate of colder zones is not ideal in the long term, for fruit production. For your growing success, is best to choose varieties that are optimally suited to your zone.

Great form, fast maturing, no bird problems.
My Stark Gold Sweet Cherry tree is about 3 years old since planting. After the first year it produced a few cherries; enough to get a taste. The second year it made a few handfuls. I'm looking forward to this year as it has really grown and matured. Should be at least a basket full. I have not had any problems with this tree variety such as rotting branches like I have had with some other types. The cherry is fully gold, no striping or red color, and the birds didn't bite any of them, though I did get a few fly holes in them. I don't spray at all to prevent bug bites though.

I had one of these for years and it just died of old age. Very happy with all the many trees and plants I have purchased and would buy only Stark again.
