Bing Cherry Tree

Delicious, Juicy, Plump Cherries


The heights we list are after we prune your tree.

Many Nurseries advertise heights before they prune, then cut off several feet before shipping. While this reduces their shipping cost, it gives their customer a shorter tree than they bargained for. The tree will likely need an extra year to grow back and to produce fruit.

We prune your tree throughout its life. This process takes us longer, but gives you more branches and quicker production.

Plus, we don't include the pot or root length in our measurements. This gives you an extra 1-2 ft. in tree size.

Our larger trees are usually one to two years older than our smaller ones and will typically give you results the first full season.

• Delicious fruit in half the time 
• Adaptable to various types of soil 
• Drought tolerant 

Bing Cherries give you a deep red color… and they are the most popular dark cherry you can find. 

You can even grow them organically... meaning no pesticides. Just pluck these delicious cherries right off the tree! Great for baking and snacking as well. 

These trees are rapid growers, and give you cherries quicker than most other cherry trees. 

It's very important that you find cherry trees that are already "branched." This means that the nursery has already pruned its fruit trees back to encourage more branches to grow. 

More branches mean: 
• More cherries 
• Earlier production 
• Stronger limbs 
• A healthier tree 

Other nurseries don't bother with pruning back their cherry trees. Instead, they sell you a thin, long stem with no branches called "whips." These trees take several more years to give you cherries, and will produce far less fruit. 

We prune our trees a particular way so that they develop a branching structure. This usually takes an extra year, but you'll see a dramatic difference. 

This process also keeps the tree "dwarfed," which makes it produce all of its fruit at a safe height for picking. 

Each tree will give you an abundance of cherries for each growing season. 

Be sure to order more than one cherry tree to ensure optimal pollination... more trees mean more cherries! 

Great for salads, pies, or fruit salads. So versatile… the possibilities are endless! Your cherries are ready for picking in June.

It's Easy to Plant your Bing Cherry Tree

Step 1 - Dig Your Hole

Select a site with full to partial sun and moist or well drained soil for your Bing Cherry Tree.

First, dig each hole so that it is just shallower than the root ball and at least twice the width.

Then loosen the soil in the planting hole so the roots can easily break through.

Use your shovel or try dragging the points of a pitch fork along the sides and bottom of the hole.

Step 2 - Place Your Plant

Next, separate the roots of your Bing Cherry Tree gently with your fingers and position them downward in the hole.

The top of the root flare, where the roots end and the trunk begins, should be about an inch above the surrounding soil.

Then make sure the plant is exactly vertical in the hole.

To make it just right, use a level.

Step 3 - Backfill Your Hole

As you backfill the hole, apply water to remove air pockets.

Remove debris like stones and grass and completely break up any dirt clumps.

Water your Bing Cherry Tree again after the transplant is complete.

To help retain some of that moisture, it's recommended that you place mulch around each plant to a depth of 2"-3" up to but not touching the trunk. Organic mulches such as wood chips also help to better soil structure as they decompose.

I'm loving all the trees ordered from FGT. This tree is newly planted near my other cherry trees so the cross pollination is there, really looking forward to those wonderful ""eating"" cherries. My other cherry trees are doing well and as healthy as this tree is I'm not going to be surprised if I have cherries in the Spring

My expierence
I just finished planting my orchard this past year. I was able to find all the different variety of trees planted fairly easy, however, when it came to finding healthier more mature Bing Cherry trees Fast Growing Trees was the place I came across to find that tree. I would of like to have found this company sooner as it would have made the investment of my time easier to planting the trees planted as I like the type of trees that where sent by fast growing trees, along with the option of the one year warranty. The trees from fast growing trees are doing well and I look forward to a bounded harvest in the future.

Our experience with the Bing and Tartarian Cherry trees
It has been about 5 months since we received our trees in the mail. They are now planted in our backyard and started sprouting new leaves, which is great to see. I am hoping they will gain enough strength to withstand the winte

Overall, I've rated the experience was satisfactory worth 4-stars, although I would've preferred to give 3 1/2 stars, and taking off the 1 1/2 stars for the following reasons:
-- Not enough branching (I am no expert, but I was hoping for a bit more)
-- Packaging needs to be improved, as it was not sturdy enough and the stems were quite bend (as both the trees were packaged in one long box with the two pots at the other ends of the box). Despite that, I am glad that the trees took root and seem to be growing now

Two Bing Trees - different outcomes
I'm concerned that the smaller, companion Bing Cherry I bought, lost its leaves weeks ago. The larger tree has all its leaves, just turning color a bit.

Hopefully, if it does not leaf in the spring, Fast-Growing Trees will replace it. FedEx left the trees where I couldn't see them. They were in their boxes a full VERY hot day.

Last autumn, I ordered a new Bing Cherry tree, to replace one that had to be removed. It arrived as promised, and was planted soon thereafter. As of April 2012, it blossomed, and already has fruit emerging.

If I get the 5-6 ft tree, how soon before I get fruit? (Bing cherry)
A shopper on Jun 29, 2014
Best Answer: The 5-6ft tree is approximately 5-6 years old so you should see fruit within a year. Also, as mentioned you would need a pollinator for the Bing to bear fruit.

can it grow from seeds?
A shopper on Jun 21, 2014
Best Answer: I have not tried , but I would assume so. However if it is a grafted tree you will not get the same tree. As with Pecan trees you cannot "plant" a pecan from a soft shell variety and get a soft shell pecan far as I know. All soft shells are grafted trees generally grafted to native root stocks. Root stocks are chosen for hardiness and soil tolerance and the grafted stock produces the fruit desired. Trees grown form seeds as you seem to want to do may not grow as well as one having a root stock more suited to the soil or tolerable to variable soil conditions.

Why do I have very small fruit on my trees? The size of my cherries are the size of a normal cherry's pit
A shopper on Jul 7, 2014
Best Answer: You might have too many cherries on your tree for your young tree to support. Remove a few of them or prune a few of the branches back. This will cause your tree to send it's energy to the remaining cherries and they'll grow larger.

What's the caliper size of the 5-6 ft tall tree?
A shopper on Jun 27, 2014
Best Answer: The 5 to 6 ft size is a at least 5 feet tall and anywhere between 5 to 6 feet tall. The foliage is about a foot and a half to a foot wide. Each tree is an individual with its own growth rate and pattern, so unfortunately our trees aren't uniform in size.

How is it shipped?
A shopper on Jun 2, 2014
Best Answer: The Bing Cherry Tree is carefully packaged to prevent any damage to the branches or roots during transit. The roots are wrapped in a plastic bag to create a miniature greenhouse that provides the tree with moisture and nutrients during shipment. All of the plants have standard shipping via FedEx.

Will my Trees and Shrubs Look Like the Photographs?

Most trees and plants on the website are pictured in their mature form. Depending on the product and growth rate, mature development can take years for your plant to resemble the photos.

Picture the last time you took a walk in the woods. The young trees were not miniature bonsai versions of mature trees. Instead they were naturally thin and lanky. Young trees are programmed to race toward the light, before the competing vegetation crowds them out. Once established at 10 feet or more, they start developing a wide canopy and shedding lower limbs.

Bare Root trees are shipped without dirt or any green foliage showing. Some customers who have never planted bare root before, think that they received a "dead stick" with roots. These dormant trees are basically sleeping over the winter as most trees do. Because of their hibernation-like stage, this is a great way to transplant these trees. Since a bare root tree lacks foliage, they need very little moisture.

Most Trees and Shrubs are Pruned Before Shipping... at No Cost to You

Pruning makes plants appear to be less-full than the ones you may have seen at your local big box garden center. A retailer's goal is to have plants look their best while sitting in the store. Our goal is to have them look the best after you plant them.

Pruned trees and shrubs not only travel better, but become established much quicker. So rather than supporting extra foliage, they put their energy into sending out deep roots. Once that happens, your plants become hardier and quickly explode with new top growth. Above the ground, pruning helps your plants develop a more attractive form.
