Harvest two different sweet cherries from one tree! Thanks to skillful grafting techniques, each tree naturally yields two varieties. A great way to save space and get a variety of cherries each summer. Fruit is best for fresh eating, salads, jams, and homemade maraschinos. No need to plant a separate tree for pollination, they will cross-pollinate one another. For ripening times see individual characteristics.

Couldn't decide what to get, seemed like the perfect tree for my indecision.

Couldn't decide what to get, seemed like the perfect tree for my indecision.
KAYLA W on Apr 17, 2018
I'm in NE Oklahoma, zone 6b. So my hardiness zone matches up perfectly but everyone locally tells me sweet cherries will not survive here. I understand late spring freezes could be an issue but I'm hearing that the long hot dry summers will kill the tree. Is there anyone out there who has sweet cherries and can offer input? Thank you!
Amy V on May 26, 2017
BEST ANSWER: I live in Illinois, zone 5. I have grafted sweet cherry trees and they do just fine in the winter.
Surprise spring freezes can kill the flowers before pollination though. They blossom early so I recommend raising Mason Bees. They hatch early.
When it gets very hot in the summer, I water them early in the morning. My problem is protecting them from wildlife waiting for the cherries to ripen. :-)
Can I grow this cherry tree in a large pot?
Julia R on Sep 26, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Yes, you can. It is a semi-dwarf, but some pruning and the fact that it's in a pot will restrict its root system, and therefore its growth. Here is a very good article about container-growing: //

Hybrid cherry tree
Bought and planted the hybrid cherry tree in fall 2015. So far, it looks good and healthy and growing well. No cherries yet, but its only been in the ground for less than 2 years. I would recommend this site, happy with everything I've gotten from them. I'll be happier in a few years when I start getting fruit!!
I have other mail-ordered trees from other sites that look pathetic. They are still alive but don't seem interested in growing much.
