Self Pollinating Sweet Cherry Tree 

The Stella Cherry Tree is a small self pollinating tree which produces an abundance of heart shaped, shiny, black red fruit with red flesh. It can live up to 35 years on a semi dwarf tree.

Red-pink blooms emerge in April to be followed in early July by clusters of shiny, red black fruit on a compact tree covered in bright green foliage. You can use these trees as specimens or in groups.

The Stella produces cherries that are especially sweet, plump and firm. They resist the cracking that you see with some cherry varieties and produce well, so you’ll have lots of cherries to eat and share. 

Stella cherries are excellent when eaten fresh, baked into pies, made into jellies and  preserves, and various other dishes. They also store and freeze well.

Your Stella Cherry tree is self pollinating, and is an excellent pollinator to other cherry trees.

They also tend to bear fruit at a young age so you won’t have as long to wait for your first harvest. Even your wildlife will thank you for adding one to their habitat…although you may have to fight the birds from time-to-time for your harvest.

Self pollinating Review by Lucki
The fact that the stella cherry tree is self pollinating is a huge plus for me.
Thought i was sent the wrong tree Review by Dee Dee
I got fruit on my tree this summer. Surprised by how much fruit my stella put out but they were all so dark colored. I thought for sure this wasn't a sweet cherry tree & was sent the wrong variety. Looks are deceiving. They are sweet. Nothing beats the taste of fresh picked fruit.
Sweet Review by Viv
I bought the bareroot & planted it last fall. Wasn't too sure when it first showed up. It took of this spring, beautiful blooms & is growing like crazy. Made me a believer in bare root trees.
Fast fruit Review by Chad
I was pleasantly surprised when I got fruit the first year after I planted my stella cherry tree. Thanks!
Self-pollinating Review by Pete
What a perfect, colorful tree for my yard. Love the blooms in spring and better yet, the yummy fruit! A big plus is that it produces at an early age, so did not have to wait long. Great little tree.
