Delicious, Easy to Grow Cherries

- Delicious fruit in half the time 
- Adaptable to various types of soil
- Drought tolerant

Black Tartarian 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 Tartarians are rapid growers, and give you cherries quicker than most other cherry trees. We careful prune and nurture your tree before we ship it to you.  Our process ensures that you’ll get:

- More Cherries
- Early Production
- Healthier Tree

 
Our pruning process ensures that your tree will develop a strong branching structure, and keeps the tree "dwarfed." This allows the tree to only grow to a height that is safe for picking.  You won’t need a ladder to get to your incredibly high yield of delicious, plump cherries.  You’ll have bushels of fruit within the first two years (sometimes after the first year.)

Once established, each tree will give you an abundance of cherries 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!  





Black Tartarian Cherry Tree Pollination


Black Tartarian Cherry Trees are not self-fertile. You will need to plant another variety to achieve fruiting. Below are the most effective pollinators we have chosen for your area...

Looks diseased and a little dead
My black tartarian tree came along with my Bing Cherry tree. I ordered both as 6-7ft tall so they got pretty expensive which I don't mind cause I've gotten a harvester peach and a 4-in- apple tree from the last year and they are doing okay this year. I trust FGT, however, my black tartarian I think hit a 7 foot mark during shipping so I when I got the plant, it seemed like it was just shoved in there. It lost some new growth because they were bent and broken at the top. I'm hoping that it survives because I noticed that all the leaves are brown and almost dead. It looks a little diseased and I'm really concerned. I'm gonna transplant it tomorrow and pray for no transplant shock.

Planting & Care



It's Easy to Plant & Care for 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.

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.

Planting & Care

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.

can black tartarian cherry polinate with another black tartarian do I need a different kind of cherry tree to pollinate a black tartarian?
john boy on Jun 23, 2015
BEST ANSWER: The guidance for sweet cherries is to plant ANOTHER VARIETY that blooms at the same time, not another of the SAME VARIETY.
What if I only have room for one? Will it still bare fruit? Also, will it grow ok is partially filtered light?
Marian B on Mar 19, 2016
BEST ANSWER: I'm not sure about the filtered light, but I'd read that the Black Tartarian requires a cross-pollinator to work best, so I planted a Bing cherry nearby it. They are only a year old, so hopefully I'll see what happens next year, when they bloom.
Can I have this kind of plant as a patio plant and still bear fruits?
Rachel C on Jul 14, 2014
BEST ANSWER: Yes you can
Do the deer bother cherry trees?
A shopper on Jul 14, 2014
BEST ANSWER: Yes, deers love eating the leaves of the tree. They were eating off a branch of leaves in front of me few days after we planted the tree on the ground. We ended up building a fence around the tree to keep the deers out.
will this tree produce fruit in daytona beach fla ?
Carlos R on Jun 3, 2014
BEST ANSWER: The Black Tartarian is recommended for zones 5-8 and you are in a zone 9.
Hey there, pal! How long until they bear fruit? I will plant in zone 7, early spring and baby them. I'm hoping soon...
Hope M on Mar 31, 2017
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!
A what does chill hours mean?
Georgine Z on Jan 28, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Many fruit trees require cold weather in order to generate fruit once they warm up. "Chill hours" is the number of hours required for your trees to accomplish this cycle. Typically, it is the number of hours of *freezing temperatures* required.
Will the Black tartarian cherry tree not
Produce cherry's without pollinating?
Breebree on May 28, 2017
BEST ANSWER: The Black Tartarian Cherry tree is not self-fertile and would need to be pollinated with the Bing, Lapins, Montmorency, Ranier or the Stella Cherry.
Do they need cross pollination and can a tartarIan cross pollinate with a Rainer tree?
Sharon E on Feb 26, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Yes they do need a pollinator and the Black Tartartian will cross pollinate with with Rainier.
Can I grow it on the patio or indoors?
Yvette K on Jul 23, 2017
BEST ANSWER: I would doubt it. My tree is in its' second season and is about nine feet tall. Plus the planting instructions indicate a three foot hole should be dug for proper planting. Be careful to spray the tree from time to time to prevent beetles from feasting on the leaves.
Do i need to buy more then one tree for it to pollinate?
Rookery on Sep 4, 2017
BEST ANSWER: You would need a Pollinator for the Black Tartarian. The Bing, Raineer, Stella, Van or a Lapins Cherry would be good choices.
Can the tartarian be planted in a large container indoors?
Anna A on Sep 6, 2017
BEST ANSWER: The Black Tartarian Cherry could not be grown indoors because it requires chill hours of 700 hours. It needs to be outside to get those chill hours in order to produce cherries.
can a newly bought black tartarian tree can cross pollinate with an older matured cherry tree?
Donna b on Jun 15, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Yes, just make sure it pollinates with a Bing, Lapins, Montomrency, Rainier or Stella Cherry Tree.
I planted my tree last year it's doing good. Should i prune it this year?
Leroy H on Apr 2, 2017
BEST ANSWER: I did not as mine did not require it.
Are these sweet or tart?
Barbara B on Mar 27, 2017
BEST ANSWER: The Black Tartarian is a medium sized purplish-black sweet cherry. Flesh is dar red, very rich and delicious. This Ripens in lat June and it needs a pollinator of a Bing, Raineer, Stella or Lapin.
