Area 3

Hardy cherry tree producing beautiful dark red fruits ready to be harvested around mid-July. Self-fertile, it begins fruiting on average three years after planting and prefers to be sheltered from strong winds. Good resistance to diseases.

Spacing: Keep 3.7-4.6 m (12-15') between plants.

Depth: Dig a hole twice as wide as the root ball; loosen the soil at the bottom of the hole. Plant at the same depth as the cherry tree was in the pot.

On presale for 2023

Requirements: Full sun. Regular watering is essential, especially for young plants during periods of drought. Moist, rich, well-drained soil, pH 4.5 - 7.5. 

Pests: Aphids, caterpillars.

Care: prune regularly every 2 years to prevent the plant from producing only on the last high stem. Sometimes you have to think about lowering it somewhat by choosing the right stems.

Harvest: Mid-August
