Black Tartarian Cherry Tree

Delicious, Easy to Grow 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.

• 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.

It's Easy to Plant your Black Tartarian Cherry Tree

Step 1 - Dig Your Hole

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.

Step 2 - Place Your Plant

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.

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 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.

I got one of these last fall. I got it with no limbs or leafs and not much of a root ball. I put it in a pot and it still looks the same one year later.

Hello, I saw in that there was a size of 5-7ft, but when i tried to buy it, there was no option for that specific size? (It was a Black Tartarian Cherry Tree).
Mychi T on Jun 24, 2014
Best Answer: The 5 to 6 foot size is at least 5 feet tall and anywhere between 5 to 6 feet tall. Each tree is a unique individual. They all grow at their own pace, so the sizes aren't uniform.

How old are the dwarf tartarian cherry trees?
Ceal W on Jun 21, 2014
Best Answer: Do not understand the question. Know of no way to tell the "age" of a tree just by looking at it. I can tell you the one I bought is growing and looks healthy. I always plant them in a leftover plastic 1,2 0r 3 gallon nursery container to start, with a good grade potting soil and grow them for a year before setting them out. Makes caring for them easier and bare root trees get a good root system before putting them in the ground. No matter what size you buy , planting them in proper soil, proper watering and fertilizing , you will see them all grow quickly and produce fruit generally quicker than claimed.

will this tree produce fruit in daytona beach fla ?
Carlos R on Jun 3, 2014
Best Answer: I don't know that it will since cherry trees require a certain number of cold hours in the winter to produce fruit.

Do the deer bother cherry trees?
A shopper on Jul 14, 2014
Best Answer: I'm not sure, as our Black Tartarian is planted in our fenced backyard (4-ft chain link). We do have deer on our property, but I've only seen them outside of the fence. We have a lot of oaks on our property, and we also put out corn in feeders for the deer, so they're probably well fed without having to go for the cherry tree! Sorry I couldn't be more help to you.

Can I have this kind of plant as a patio plant and still bear fruits?
Rachel C on Jul 14, 2014
Best Answer: Hello Rachel,
I bought my cherry tree and love it. I live in Texas and did not know how it would do. I can not tell you about the tree being a patio plant and bear fruit. My tree arrived in great shape and was about 4' tall and very healthy. I know it will not bear fruit this year and I am waiting for next spring.

is july too late to plant 5 to 7 t cherry trees.and how long before they produce cherries?
A shopper on Jul 9, 2014
Best Answer: It probably depends on what area/climate zone you are in. I wouldn't say "too late", but I would not expect any fruit to appear this season. It can take a few years for the trees to fruit depending on a variety of factors, especially after the shock of transportation and replanting. By the second year they come back from the winter season stronger than the first year. Also what is NOT mentioned in the product description is that in order to pollinate and cause the fruit to form, it requires a second cherry tree AND it often has to be a different species. Bing requires Black Tartarion or similarly different type of cherry in order to achieve fruit formation...so by two and research the pollination match prior to ordering.
Good Luck!
