The Bing Cherry Tree, Most Popular Variety

  • Most Popular Sweet Cherry
  • Fruit is High in Antioxidants
  • Ripens in Early to Mid-Season

The Bing Cherry (Prunus avium 'Bing') is positively one of the finest and most famous of the sweet cherry varieties. A cross between the Black Republican and an unknown parent, the variety was discovered in the orchards of Seth Lewelling of Milwaukie Oregon and has been adored ever since!

In early spring, your Bing Cherry tree will be positively glowing when it is covered in dazzling white flowers. Later in the spring and during the summer, the Bing Cherry will have bright green leaves, a wonderful contrast to the deep garnet, almost-black fruit.

Bing produces is a very large, dark, delicious, cherry with smooth, glossy skin and has set the standard for flavor for over 100 years. The fruit is firm, extremely juicy and has what has become the classic rich sweet cherry flavor. The Bings commercial success is also based on its heavy production. Dependable year after year come mid-season, the Bings crop of large sweet cherries is always abundant.

Bing is a perfect cherry for use in baking and preserves. However, your family and friends will not be able to resist eating these mouth-watering juicy cherries right off the tree. High in anti-oxidants, the Bing Cherry is a refreshing, healthy snack on a hot summer day.

The Bing Cherry does require cross-pollination, so another cherry tree is needed to produce fruit. Many cherry varieties will act as pollinators for the Bing, a few we recommend are the Lapins and Black Tartarian which are the traditional pollinators. We also recommend the Van and Rainier for a little added variation. Rainiers, a popular yellow or blond cherry, or the Van cherry would extend your harvest and produce a plentiful bounty of cherries.

This popular, well-loved cherry tree would make a great addition to any your edible landscape both in form and fruit. The sweet cherry is one of the most desirable fruit varieties for the home garden.

Our cherry trees are always in high demand. Quantities are limited and many will sell out soon. Order a Bing Cherry tree of your own today to avoid disappointment!

Recommended pollinators: Van, Rainier, Stella, Lapins

America’s Favorite Cherry

The story of the Bing Cherry is a story right out of the settling of the west. In the late 1840's, Henderson Lewelling brought his family and a wagon load of assorted fruit trees west from Iowa to the Willamette Valley of Oregon settling in the town of Milwaukie.

By 1850 his brother Seth joined Henderson in running a commercial nursery and as opportunities grew, Henderson left for California; looking to expand leaving Seth run the Milwaukie nursery.

The story of the Bing cherry includes the struggles of the Chinese in the 1850's. During the massive migration from China to the US, hundreds of thousands of men sought employment in mining, building railroads, lumber mills and agriculture. It was these immigrants that helped to fill the labor gap caused by the great Civil War.

Seth Lewelling, having become a well-respect grower, had introduced several new fruit varieties while managing his brothers test orchard. He along with his Chinese foreman, Ah Bing, would walk the rows regularly to observe the seedling varieties.

One such selection, later identified as a cross between Black Republican and Napoleon Bigarrreau, was planted in the row assigned to Ah Bing. The selection was singled out around 1875 and Seth named it in honor of the man who help to develop it; Ah Bing; and the Bing Cherry was born.

The parents of the Bing are quite distinguished as well. The Black Republican (also named by Seth Lewelling) is a popular, antique heirloom variety boasting deep, dark red fruit and a wonderful earthy, sweet flavor.

The Napoleon Bigarreau is a white-skinned selection, which was only recently identified as a parent to the Bing. Napoleon traces itself back to the 1700's with a rich, fine flavor and is considered one of the best heirloom varieties of white cherry's still available. The cross of these two fine fruits, that are outstanding on their own, resulted in the number one variety of cherry planted today.
