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.

Got the tree fast and in good shape. I planted it and cut it back and it took root and started growing fast. Planted it in June in Mid Florida, so far I'm happy with it.

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

Step 1: Dig Your Hole

Select a site with full to partial sun and moist or well drained soil for your Lapins 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 Lapins 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 Lapins Cherry Tree again after the transplant is complete.

What is it about "cherry trees", that preclude it from being shipped here in CA? Almost all growers or providers won't ship to this socialist state, oops, my bad, I mean the Peoples Republic of CA,--- no, this great state.

marco p on Dec 31, 2014
BEST ANSWER: Agricultural restrictions prohibits us from shipping it into your state.

Will the Lapin Cherry tree survive with deer population?
Bob G on Feb 18, 2017
BEST ANSWER: not sure not in a deer area
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

Would Rainer cherries be a better choice for San Antonio and container planting?
Blue A on Mar 18, 2016
BEST ANSWER: I live in McKinney TX and have been successful growing Bing, Lapin, and most recently bought the 5 in 1 cherry tree that is thriving outside. If you get the chill hours required in your area, I don't see any other environmental conditions that will block you.
Size tree grows?
ranndy f on Dec 28, 2015
BEST ANSWER: The mature height is 15-20 foot tall and 10-15 foot wide.
Need to know the chilling hours as I live in zone 9 and no cherry ?? trees around?
Pete1 on Nov 26, 2015
