• 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.

If you're planting a hedge, mark out a visual guide by placing stakes five to six feet apart and looping string around them. Plant the where the stakes are and they'll grow together to make a dense privacy screen.

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

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.

Is this tree a self pollinator, if not will 2 of the same tree work or do I need another variety in order to pollinate?
A shopper on Jun 6, 2014
Best Answer: We bought the Rainier, as it was a suggested pollinator for the Bing Cherry. However, we had a few blooms on both this year, but no fruit developed.

If I get the 5-6 ft tree, how soon before I get fruit? (Bing cherry)
A shopper on Jun 29, 2014
Best Answer: Enter an answer to this question ; Keep in mind that you need to buy another cherry tree such as a black tartarian in order for the Bing cherry tree to polinate. I bought my Bing and Black tartarian (both were 3-4 ft)and planted them as directed last summer. They are growing but I did not get any fruit this year. The bigger the trees get the more blossoms there are for the bees to polinate the trees. Your trees may produce fruit earlier since they are bigger to start with. I am hoping for fruit in the next year or two. I hope this answered your question.

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.
