Cherries are a practical fruit for home orchards where climate and soil conditions are suitable. Once established, they require little maintenance and are reliable producers. They are best adapted to areas where summers are moderately cool. The trees dislike high humidity. They are usually the last fruit to bloom and first to ripen. Most varieties require a pollenizer. Sweet cherries can reach 25-30 feet tall in deep soils. Sensitive to wet, tight soils. Susceptible to birds, brown rot, and bacterial canker. The trees are 2 years old and you can expect to harvest 4th or 5th year.

On New Root 1, which was tested under the name 3CR178, which is a recent Zaiger release. New Root 1 encourages early bearing and will reach a height of 8 to 12 feet if left unpruned. This dwarfing rootstock is very versatile and more tolerant of clay soils then either Mazzard or Mahaleb. Trees on New Root 1 can be grown in containers.

Please Note: Although most of our bare-root trees arrive to our warehouse in mid-December, there are a few varieties -- Mulberry, Pecan, Persimmon, Quince, and Walnut -- that will not arrive until mid-January. If you order any of those varieties along with varieties that arrive in mid-December, your order will be delayed for shipment until mid-January unless you ask us to split your shipments and agree to pay any additional shipping charges resulting from two separate shipments.
