    An exceptional, self-fertile, sweet cherry with large dark red or black fruit. White flowers appear in mid-spring, followed by delicious, juicy cherries which are ready for picking in late July. It is a vigorous grower, starting with an upright habit, spreading as it matures. An early and prolific cropper, that will usually start to crop within 2 - 3 years. It also makes a good pollinator for other cherries.

  • Garden care: When planting incorporate lots of well-rotted garden compost in the planting hole and stake firmly. Lightly prune in summer to retain the shape and cut back any dead, diseased or branches which cross to healthy wood.

      Hello,

      Bare root trees need to be planted when they are dormant, so the best time to plant is autumn and winter.

  • Q:

    Hi
    I am looking at the
    cherry 'Stella'
    cherry - fan shaped
    which states it grows up to 6m by 6m. I have a fence which is 2 metres high and I wanted to train it along there but going width ways for about 2 metres each side. Is this possible?

    Also, can you tell me how many years old this one is and when it is likely to fruit?

      Hello,

      This plant is currently around 2 years old, so it should start to crop in another couple of years. It also could be kept around 2.5m tall and 4m wide.
