Lovely Ornamental with Outstanding Fruit

Rainier Cherry Tree is a fruit-producing tree with outstanding yellow-cherries.  Plant one in a prominent spot in your yard for its decorative appeal and the delight of watching your harvest develop.

Often called the “white cherry” (for its creamy white flesh), Rainier is prized for its exceptionally sweet fruit.  It is often considered the best yellow cherry by gardeners--sometimes even called the best of ALL cherry varieties. 

Rainier is a large cherry with a lively, yellow skin and delightful scarlet blush.  It’s early bearing so you’ll already be enjoying your delicious harvest in mid-June when other garden treats are just getting started.  Rainier tends to be a heavy bearer, so you’ll have plenty of its sweet and healthy cherries to cook with, freeze or just eat right off the tree. 

Rainier Cherry tree will grow to 35 feet in height, but can easily be kept smaller with a little pruning.  People love its spring blooms almost as much as the cherries.  The pink-tinted, white blossoms appear in profusion mid-spring, emitting a delicate fragrance that will be as enjoyable to you as to your yard’s pollinators.  In autumn Rainier puts on another show when its foliage transitions to spicy tones of bronze and yellow. 

You’d expect Rainier to be a difficult tree to grow, but just the opposite.  Even with all its spectacular qualities, Rainier is surprisingly low maintenance and easy to grow.  Try one yourself this year and you’ll see how truly amazing Rainier Cherry trees are.

Great fall color! Review by BB
I bought 2 in spring. Never bought bare root trees before. Arrived taller than advertised. I was a little nervous, I guess they were dormant. Not only did they take off, but the fall color this year is amazing.
Disappointed Review by Greg
I bought 2 different types of cherry trees, and 3 apple trees. Apple trees are standing healthy, cherry tries died within a month.
Amazing plant Review by John
Just received my Rainier Cherry today, it was amazingly packaged, not a single branch broken! As soon as i unwrapped it, it went into the ground in my backyard. The growth has been incredible! My personal favorite cherry.
