Self-Fertile Cherry Tree with Sweet Fruit

Sweet Delicious Cherries

The irresistible sweetness of cherries will become a summer family tradition when you grace your landscape with this beautiful tree. When harvest time arrives, the lapins cherry tree will produce 15 to 20 gallons of the succulent fruit.

Multiple Seasons of Spectacular Beauty

Enhance the look of your landscape from spring to summer to fall with the attention-grabbing lapins cherry tree. In the spring the lapins cherry will burst to life with a spectacular array of bright white blooms. These vibrant blooms then transition into a summer bounty of delectable sweet cherries followed by an impressive orange, red and yellow display of autumn colors.

Self-Fertile and Annual Pruning

Unlike many other sweet cherry trees, the lapins variety is self-fertile. Also if you don't enjoy pruning -- no problem! The lapins cherry tree only requires pruning once per year during the winter months to assist in the following year's fruit production.

- Full sun
- Produces sweet, delicious lapin cherries
- Three distinct seasons of beauty
- Pruning only necessary once per year
- Self-fertile

Lapins Cherry Tree Pollination

Lapins Cherry Trees are self-fertile. You will get fruit with only one plant. However, adding an additional pollinator will drastically increase the size of your crop. Below are the most effective pollinators we have chosen for your area...

Great first season growth
My lapins cherry tree was planted in mid May and grew very well throughout the season. There was 18-24" of new growth by September. The leaves came in very full and dark green. I am very impressed by the growth and hardiness thus far. I am rating at 4 stars because I have yet to see if it will survive the Denver, CO area winter and I have not tried the fruit yet.

Great Cherry Tree
The Lapins Cherry tree arrived with very little damage (few dried leaves fell off), but once replanted and watered carefully, the tree is doing great.
Will probably order another when back in stock.

Planting & Care

It's Easy to Plant & Care for Your Lapins Cherry Tree

Lapins Cherry Tree  Planting Diretions

The Lapins cherry (Prunus avium ‘Lapins’) is a low maintenance tree, that adds beauty and color to your landscape for several months out of the year as well as providing sweet cherries. Bursting with white blooms in the spring, loaded with red cherries in the summer and a beautiful fall display of red, orange, and yellow foliage. Growing in USDA zones 5-9, this cherry tree can also tolerate a much broader range of temperatures and produce cherries in more southern areas as it requires less than 400 chill hours. The lapins cherry is self fertile making it great for a small landscape as it also only reaches 15-20 feet tall/wide and only requires minimal annual pruning to aid in fruit production the following year. Since it is self fertile, you will only need the one tree for the fruit to grow.

Location: Choose a sunny spot that will give your cherry tree a minimum of 6 hours of direct sunlight per day. Although it will thrive in almost any kind of soil, avoid locations where the soil will remain soggy for prolonged lengths of time.

Planting Instructions:
1) Dig a hole that is as deep as the root ball and three times as wide.
2) Position the tree in the hole and fill it about half-way with soil, tamp to remove air pockets, then fill the hole completely.
3) Water to secure the tree and remove any additional air pockets in the soil.
4) Add more soil if necessary after settling.
5) Spread a layer of mulch over the soil around your cherry tree to help keep the soil moist, encourage healthy growth and protect your tree against competing growth.

Watering: During the growing season, if your tree receives at least an inch of rain every 10 days then no additional irrigation is necessary. If the season is hot and dry then you may need to provide some additional water. The best way to water is by using a slow trickling garden hose left at the base of the tree. This will allow the water to penetrate the soil more deeply and prevent it from running off over the soil surface. Make sure the ground is fully moisturized all around the root system. Mulching will greatly assist in maintaining soil moisture.

Pruning: A year after planting your cherry tree, prune your tree in the late to end of winter while dormant. Shape the tree to encourage horizontal branch growth with space between branches. Prune once a year as necessary to remove weak, drooping branches. These are usually poor fruit bearing branches and removing them will encourage positive air flow and healthy growth. Also make sure light can penetrate the center of the canopy.

Fertilization: Good, nutrient rich soil should only require the addition of nitrogen. Fertilize in the spring and midsummer using nitrogen fertilizer twice annually applying 2 weeks after planting and 4 weeks after the first application. Use a complete fertilizer such as 10-10-10 and apply at the rate of 0.05 pounds of actual nitrogen per dose. Fertilizer application ratios vary upon the formulation so be sure to follow package directions. When applying, be sure fertilizer is 6 to 8 inches away from the trunk around the tree to prevent the roots from burning. Organic fertilizers such as manure or blood meal are highly discouraged as their nitrogen levels cannot be measured. Keep in mind that cherry trees require high levels of nitrogen early in the season and lower levels during the late summer.

Pests: Cherry trees can be susceptible to brown rot. The best prevention for this problem is proper pruning to provide good air circulation. Be sure there is ample room between branches. Remove any infected blossoms, fruit or leaves and inspect your tree continuously to catch any early signs of the disease. To spot brown rot, look for brown, soggy flowers or mummified looking fruit on your tree. For control once the disease is recognized, use a sulfur spray 4 times: when flower buds are pink, when flowers are open, right after petal fall, and 2 weeks after petal fall.

It was during World War 2, when you heard the sirens, you had to turn all the lights out in the house, I was a little girl. living in the country, I use to go down the country road to my friends house, she had a big cherry tree in the front yard, we climb the tree and pick cherries, then put them in a little box, then load them in a wagon to sell for 10 cents a box, if I live long enough to get cherries on my tree, I will share them with everyone on my street.

Is this a sweet cherry?
Dennis on Mar 25, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Yes it is a swet6 cherry. It is self-fertile.
Noreen B on Oct 7, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Depends how big and old the tree was when you bought and planted it and if you planted it with the proper phase. All fruit trees but especially cherry and apple trees seem to be very sensitive to the phases of the moon. You must plant them in the proper phase or they will never properly produce or grow. Farmer's Almanac on line will give you free planting recommendations use gardening by phases of the moon watch you do not plant anything on the barren or extremely barren periods usually 1 or 2 days in a row 2-3 times a month. If planted in the proper phase and the plant was 1-2 years old when received you could get a small crop in the first year you planted. This nursery always has extremely healthy plants that will thrive when planted (In the proper phase) good luck russ
