SWEET AND DECADENT MOUTH-WATERING FRUIT

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.

My Stella
Has had a tough time in the Texas summer, but I moved it indoors for July and August and it perked right back up! Overall it's a great tree. It was an unusually hot season, so hopefully it will do better next year.

Absolutely Beautiful Tree!
I was shocked when I opened the box! Received it in perfect condition, all leaves intact, packaging was awesome, and it was much taller than I expected. The box was HUGE and when I stood it up, it was at least 2 feet taller than me ( 5' 2")!
The branch tops were folded around inside the box. I did order the largest tree, but was expecting a 4-5 ft tree.

Not much new growth as I got it planted in July, but it's doing great and will see how it fares in it's first Michigan winter. I can't wait until spring to see a full season of growth and "maybe" some beautiful cherry blossoms. I couldn't be happier, I'm head over heels in love with my tree!!!

PS I also have some citrus, banana, etc, and all are outstanding! All I can say is "Thank you soooo much Pam!"
My trees have brought me such incredible joy this summer. : )

I most certainly HIGHLY recommend Fast Growing Trees!

Stella cherry tree didn't make it.
It died after a few months and I didn't get the insurance. Followed growing instructions but this was my first attempt at planting a tree so I probably messed something up. Two stars as everything arrived when expected and was packaged well but it did die.

When I received the tree, it had a main stem with a branch on each side joined exactly at the same position (reminded me of a sling shot) and they had very little growth on them. Nothing survived except a little grown at the very top of the main stem. That is still alive. Maybe I should have cut the tree way back when I first planted it. It may have had to much tree to try to support. I will probably cut it way back this winter and see if that will encourage new grow on all three branches in the spring.

Planted Last Fall Budding Now in Spring
I planted this dwarf cherry tree last fall and it grew a couple of inches before a hard freeze. It is now budding and getting ready to bloom, so it made it through a cold Zone 5 winter. I won't have cherries for a couple years but the birds and I can't wait! Very hardy! I have two other cherry trees planted for pollination.

Planting & Care



It's Easy to Plant & Care for 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.

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.

I like cherries but am not sure I have ever eaten a Stella but needed more than one cherry tree for pollination.

I grew up with a cherry tree in my back yard and I'm looking forward to carry on with one or more of my own.
Carolyn R on Mar 31, 2016
i want to see how ell these grow in CO
Joseph S on Mar 28, 2016
It is compatible for cross pollinating with the Black Tartarian cherry tree I already have. I also read that the fruit is delicious.
Susan B on Mar 19, 2016
good sweet flavor!

ROBERT J H on Apr 15, 2016
can it be planted now? middle of August? Chcagoland area!
A shopper on Aug 13, 2014
BEST ANSWER: I would never again plant anything in July in Connecticut because it's much too late in the summer when it's most hot and humid. The best time here is spring and late summer or early fall.
does it come in a pot or bare root, and how old is it?
david s on Jun 19, 2014
BEST ANSWER: The Stella Cherry Trees are currently going out in pots. The 3 to 4 foot is about 3 years old and the 4 to 5 foot is about 4 years old.
My daughter just bought a stella cherry tree for me, will it produce cherry this year?
Rosemarie P on May 18, 2015
BEST ANSWER: No I still have no cherries
two blooms on the entire tree so I don't know if it will even have any this year. It doesn't look like it.
I don't have another cherry tree to pollinate. Maybe it's not self pollinating I don't know?
Didn't grow much first year but I see it growing faster already this year so maybe next year
much fuller and more leaves this year. It survived a very cold winter and a lot of snow!! I thought it would die for sure but it looks good.
what type of soil do you need ?
bill w on Jul 4, 2015
BEST ANSWER: I just mixed the soil I dug with soil from a bag of miracle-gro garden soil from home depot. The cherry trees are growing well but did not get any fruits yet. Probably next year. Good luck.
How fast do Stella Cherry Trees grow? I bought one from FGT last year and planted it in the fall. It is growing well and looks great. The new growth is about 12 inches long and I am wondering if I can expect this every year.
Darren G on Jun 26, 2015
BEST ANSWER: When young, Stella will put on 10" to 15" of growth a year, and sometimes more under optimal growing conditions. It will slow down as it matures. Don't forget to prune while it is young, to encourage fruiting at a younger age and make a smaller easier-to-harvest tree at bearing.
We are in Zone 5, Illinois. Will it be good enough for Stella cherries or do we need special care in winter?
thanks
Yogesh
Yogesh on Mar 11, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Yogesh, I'm in zone 6, NW Arkansas. I bought the Stella Cherry from Fast-growing trees, and it did not make it. Those trees that come bare root, have a hard time getting started. I have two different sweet cherrys, one is stella, and they are going in their second growing season. My advice to you is to go to your local nursery, and buy your trees. The price will probably be less, and they will be in a bucket, and already rooted. Your zone will be OK for the cherry trees.
Is this tree drought resistant?
Wanda P on Apr 26, 2016
BEST ANSWER: No fruit tree is drought resistant. A young tree needs moisture on a consistent basis. If your buying a sweet cherry, go to your local nursery and purchase your tree. The bare root trees are hard to get started, and very often to not make it. All the bare root trees I purchased from Fast Growing Trees, did not make it. Buy a tree in a 5 gallon container at your local nursery. Plant in early Spring, or early Fall.
What rootstock are your Stella's grafted to?
PETER S on Nov 27, 2015
BEST ANSWER: They are grafted onto mazzard rootstock
Can I plant it now? it says ships Feb 2nd 2016
Kay O on Sep 4, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Fall and spring are both great times to plant a cherry tree. We do not currently have any available so it will not be shipped until February.
I live in the SF Bay Area, just north of SF. We are in a fog zone, but the weather is basically temperate year-round. Will this tree like this climate?
catherine s on Jun 21, 2015
BEST ANSWER: SF Bay area is too hot for the Stella Cherry to thrive there. Cherry trees require a certain amount of chill hours and it would not get them there.

Will 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.


Trimming & Pruning

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.
