Please note: All of our tart cherries are self-fertile.
Tart cherries are generally smaller trees than sweet cherries and bloom too late to pollinate sweet cherries. Fresh cherries are so expensive to buy.
Yet, with our new, fast bearing, dwarf Giessen rootstocks they are easy to grow and pick! Many people have told us, "Full size sweet cherry trees that grow to 40 feet tall are for the birds". We agree!
Now it is no longer necessary to risk life or limb to pick a bowl of cherries. We offer dwarf cherry trees, of many varieties, which thrive in our maritime climate and in most of the nation.
All our cherries, unless noted, are on the very dwarfing Gisela 5® rootstock and the price includes the very expensive rootstock royalty. We offer sturdy 4-6' grafted trees that will dig in and grow for you. They are often unbranched "whips" that will branch well upon planting! USDA Zones 4-9.
