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
Black Tartarion 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.
Black Tartarions 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.
Save thousands by shopping in the convenience of your own home instead of paying a landscaper for trees that struggle.
Receive well developed, large trees and shrubs that thrive in your area. Varieties that are easy to grow, long lived, and trouble free. Your plants are clearly marked for size, pruned to a nice pleasing shape, and are delivered right to your doorstep.
We shun growth regulators and other chemicals that make plants look good in the stores but struggle to survive once planted.
Some nurseries charge you for a taller tree then chop 1/3 off, so it will fit in a shorter box. This saves them on shipping but can harm your tree and make you wait longer for it to grow back.
Select a site with full to partial sun and moist or well drained soil for your Black Tartarian 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.
Next, separate the roots of your Black Tartarian 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.
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 Black Tartarian 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.
