Sweet cherry trees (Prunus avium) are some of the most sought-after fruit trees in America due to their delicious, sun-ripened fruit. Picked right off the tree, you can pop a sweet cherry in your mouth and immediately enjoy its full flavor. Sweet cherry trees are vigorous growers that love a little extra room. Dwarf cherry trees are propagated specifically for smaller spaces and will even grow in large containers. With beautiful blossoms and foliage, a cherry tree is well worth its place in your yard.
