It's a classic cherry
Connie J on Mar 9, 2017
When my parents moved into our house, there were 2 cherry trees in the back yard. My granddad, who comes from a long line of farmers, identified them as black tartarians. They produced the most amazing cherries for all the years my parents lived here and made the best jam ever! Now that I've moved into the house and the trees are dying back (they are probably over 30 years old) I have got to replace them. It wouldn't be the same around here without them.

Can you keep black tartarians to a lower height by trimming them? What if you only have room for one tree?
Maggie on Apr 30, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Its to soon to tell. The bear+ deer got in the orchard last winter after I left to work out of town.. My apples 15 years + old I do prune wide at the bottom and very low limbs, not like commercial orchards, but for easier harvesting, + if bears tear the fence down they won,t be so inclined to tear the tops out of the trees to see whats there. It is hard to mow like that. In 10-15 years I might be able to answer your question about cherry trees.

Is the Black Tartarian cherry self-pollinating?
Terry H on Jul 12, 2017
BEST ANSWER: The Black Tartarian Cherry is not self pollinating. It requires pollination from any other sweet cherry.
can you use a sweet cherry and sour cherry tree for pollination?
Glenda P on Mar 10, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Unfortunately not. Only a sour cherry can pollinate a sour cherry; only a sweet cherry can pollinate a sweet cherry.

Wow! Thank you! What A Gem! Don't Settle For Less! Order One Now!
After planting this standard size Black Tartarian cherry tree from Stark Brother's Nursery last June (2016), this tree has been nothing short of a marvel. In fact, even after easily weathering the cold Michigan winter, the tree has now grown to about 5'4" tall, and has also branched out with plenty of healthy green leaves. If you're looking for a superb standard size Black Tartarian cherry tree, Stark Brother's Nursery will be your source. Be sure to spray this tree regularly with Stark Brother's Bonide Orchard Spray Concentrate so as to ward off the harmful insects. In addition, the spray will help deter fungus growth as well. Don't wait! Order one now!
