Cold Hardy Cherry Tree

Van Cherry Tree is a cold hardy cherry tree with ornamental features.  Its shiny, serrated leaves and upright rounded form make it an excellent choice for almost anyplace in your yard.   However, you’ll certainly prefer to have one where it’s visible to yourself and others with its spring beauty, mid-summer harvest, and fall display.

In the spring, clusters of lovely white flowers will cover your cherry tree in a floral spectacle that’s enough to take your breath away.  This is soon followed by a plethora of edible cherries in mid June.  From autumn until frost, the foliage turns a beautiful, brilliant yellow for yet another splash of color.  

Van produces an abundance of sweet, shiny and black, crack-resistant cherries in mid-summer.   The fruit is outstanding eaten right off the tree, or can be used for jellies, jams, pies or preserves.  It can even be easily frozen for future use.  Birds and other wildlife love Van Cherries too, so whatever you choose to leave on the tree is sure to not be wasted. 

The Van Cherry Tree is a compact cherry tree that reaches heights of 20 feet with an equal spread.  Van is one of the best pollinators for any other sweet cherry tree, but requires a pollinizer itself. 

Cherry trees need 700 chilling hours, and are hardy enough to plant in the Great Lakes area, so you won’t have any trouble with this variety.  You don’t even have to prune it if you don’t want to, but a yearly pruning will bring you added growth and an even more impressive harvest.

Pollination Review by Joseph P
Used my van cherry to pollinate my bing cherry. Now they both are producing great cherries.
Fruit amount Review by BD
Wow, this tree produces a lot of cherries. I have 2 of them and they provide us with a lot of sweet eating. They are getting pretty big so I suppose I will have to get the big ladder out!
