Lapins Cherry Tree
One of the Largest, Juiciest Sweet Cherries
The Lapins Cherry is a cross between the Van and Stella Cherry. It is one of the largest and juiciest of the sweet cherries and provides multi seasonal interest.
In April, your Lapins Cherry will be smothered in brilliant white blossoms followed by an abundance of sweet, large, dark red to purple fruit with light red flesh in July.
Lapins Cherries are self-fruitful and do not require a pollinator to set fruit in most regions. They are considered the number one pollinator for the Bing in most areas. A great universal pollinator it is the perfect selection for those who need a pollinator for an existing unknown cherry. The fruit are 1' across (each!) and resist splitting due to its' flexible skin. The flavor is divine, incredibly juicy and sweet. The Lapins fruit is firm and so big that one cherry is a mouthful. They are delicious right off the tree and wonderful for baking.
Finally, in the fall your Lapins Cherry tree will delight yet again with beautiful autumn color. The green leaves will turn orange, red and yellow.
The Lapins Cherry is hardy to -20 degrees, and prefer full sun and a soil that holds moisture without becoming soggy. Lapins Cherry grows to 20' but will be held to any height with pruning.
