Stella Cherry Tree
Self Pollinating Sweet Cherry Tree
The Stella Cherry Tree is a compact self-fruitful tree which produces an abundance of heart shaped, shiny, black red fruit with red flesh. Its tight upright character makes it an idea choice for the Home Garden.
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 the Stella as a single specimen or create a home orchard with 2 or more.
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-fruitful, but is an excellent pollinator to other cherry trees as well.
They are precocious which means they bear fruit at a young age so you won’t have 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. Stella’s compact habit makes it easy to maintain the trees height for making bird netting a breeze.
