Cherry Tree - Stella
Purple Fruited 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 compact 15 foot 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.
