Stella Cherry Tree

Pam's Picks
Stella is the queen of cherries with its bodacious blooms and the most highly rated fruit available on the market today. Plus, you only need a single tree to produce juicy cherries since no cross-pollinating partner is needed to bear fruit—so it saves space and money. These cherries are unbelievably juicy. If I could plant only one Cherry Tree, Stella would be it.

Stella Cherry Tree

Sweet and Decadent Mouth-Watering Fruit


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.

The Stella Cherry Tree is one of the finest cherry trees available, and its beautiful blossoms, vibrant foliage and delicious fruit top the list of this tree’s many attributes.

Stella Cherries are among the first trees trumpeting in the arrival of spring with their gorgeous, hot-pink blossoms that are showy and long-lasting. This Cherry Tree is tailor-made to be the showpiece of your outdoor living area.

If gardening space is limited, you don’t need a lot of real estate for a Stella Cherry Tree. Unlike most other Cherry Trees that require two to bear fruit, Stella is a self-pollinator so you only need a single tree to have bushels of your own juicy cherries every season.

Around mid-July your cherries will be purple, plump and ready for picking. Stella Cherries are firm, succulent and sweet with a smooth skin that’s resistant to cracking. If supermarket cherries are all you’ve ever known, you’ll be pleasantly surprised with the flavor of Stella cherries picked fresh from your home garden.

Just think of the scrumptious cherry muffins, pies and cobblers you’ll be baking with your very own harvested fruit. You can cook up batches of gourmet cherry preserves for special occasions or to give as gifts. Fresh cherry juice straight from your press makes a delicious afternoon treat on a warm summer day. Wonderful as a healthy and tasty snack right off the tree, Stella Cherries store and freeze marvelously well.

Maturing to heights of just 15-20 feet, this semi-compact tree is versatile enough for smaller orchards while producing a generous crop that’s safely harvested without requiring that perilous climb up a dangerous ladder.

Stella Cherry Tree bears fruit at a young age, so you won’t have to wait long for your first harvest. At our nursery, we devote an extra year to growing and pruning our trees, ensuring that you take delivery of a well-branched, healthy specimen guaranteed to give you many years of production and enjoyment.

If you’re looking for a second tree to act a good pollinator, Stella is a good partner for other cherry trees as well, particularly if you lack for garden space.

With produce and gas prices rising, consider the money saving benefits of having this tree in your backyard. You can grow your own cherries without the use of pesky pesticides, so you know exactly what you and your family are eating without all the unknown factors presented in imported foods.

Why Buy from Fast Growing Trees?

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.

No Chemicals

Large Size

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.

It's Easy to Plant your Stella Cherry Tree

Step 1 - Dig Your Hole

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

Will the dwarf stella cherry tree withstand winters with sub zero temperatures and extreme sun in the summer?
Rick S on Jun 9, 2014
Best Answer: II did buy a Stella last year for my daughter at her house (50 miles away) and when I saw it last month, it had grown about 2 ft and I assume that next year it might bloom and set fruit. It is supposed to be self fruitful so I will see. I usually grow different varieties in of citrus trees in pots and the stella tree is the first of the cherries that I have tried. I don't think I will have any problem with it in this area. I used to live in Penna and spent many days at Erie area picking where these sweet cherries are grown , I don't expect to have any problems here in Tenn either.
