Sweet cherries; do you have to say more? Coupled with Stark's long history of proven arbory, it's a sure fire hit.

I planted a different variety of sweet cherry 2 years ago, but we unfortunately had a harsh winter and it didn't survive. After doing some reseach, I discovered that sour cherries are better for the Eastern Colorado climate, but the locoal extention specifically mentioned that Stella Cherry Trees do alright in Urban areas of Eastern Colorado. Since I wanted a sweet cherry tree I decided I would take my chances on this variety.

I live in NE Texas, zone 8-9 depending on our summer temps. Has anyone in this area had success getting cherries to bear? If so, which ones?
goldyhands on Mar 30, 2016
BEST ANSWER: I'm in North Dallas (8a) and this Stella tree I bought from Stark has fruited last year, and this year (very mild winter) is blooming. I've heard Minnie Royal and Royal Lee are also other good choices for low chill cherries.

Great for North Texas
I'm happy with this variety, it has fruited fast and with the low chill hours (relatively) we get here in Dallas I think it's a winner. Of the other 6 or so varieties I bought, only one other even flowered and didn't produce fruit.

So I kept Stella! Others may work out if you give them a longer establishment time or have different chill hours or better soil. Mine is terrible clay.

All trees
I have ordered over 100 items from this company. The customer service has been great! I have only had to get one replacement plant and it was a nice hassle free process. I like that they care many dwarf fruit trees to pick from.
