Tart Cherry With Ornamental Appeal

Early Richmond Cherry Tree is a heavy-yielding fruit tree with ornamental qualities. Use one as a specimen tree for your yard, fruit tree for your garden or even as a pretty shade tree to relax under during those hot summer afternoons.

There's nothing like having your very own Cherry tree. A profuse bloom of abundant white flowers in the spring will welcome summer like no other tree in your yard. The glossy dark-green foliage will fill out your tree, and soon a sumptuous feast of succulent, sun-warmed Cherries will be within your reach. Again, there is simply nothing like it!

Your Early Richmond Cherry Tree ripens a week earlier than other cherries, so you won't have to wait to partake of its delicious bounty. In fact, it's the first sour Cherry available in late spring.

The round, bright red Cherry has a delicious, tart flavor that is perfect for pies, cobblers, dessert sauces, preserves, and jams. If you choose to leave the fruit on the tree, your songbirds will be sure to thank you for the special treat.

Early Richmond Cherry is a hardy, rounded tree that will produces prolifically for many years. It won't take up much space in your yard. In fact, it can be held to almost any height with summer pruning.

Your Early Richmond Cherry Tree was known in England as early as 1500 when settlers brought it to the US. They certainly must have valued its hardy nature and exceptional fruit to bring it with them to their new homeland, and once you begin to experience this remarkable Cherry tree in your own yard, you will too.
