    The benefits of the Drop ‘N Grow™ bag…

    By growing these trees in burlap bags, the roots grow into the cloth, rather than circling around a pot. This forces these trees to put out thousands of fine hair roots. These roots bring moisture and nutrients into the plants. This means you get a tree that will become established quicker and provide you with superior and faster growth.

    These will be the easiest trees you have ever planted! Simply dig your hole, place the Drop 'N Grow™ bag in the center (burlap included) then use excess dirt to fill the hole. That's it!

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. 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.

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...

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.

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 requires 700-900 chill hours (32-45 degrees)
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
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 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.
