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.

Order yours today, while supplies last!

Stella Cherry Tree Pollination

Stella 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...

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.

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!

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.

Planting & Care

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.

Vicki B on Sep 23, 2017
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.
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.
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.
What rootstock are your Stella's grafted to?
PETER S on Nov 27, 2015
BEST ANSWER: They are grafted onto mazzard rootstock
Will this polinator work with lambert?
Rick Caggiano on Mar 27, 2017
We are in Zone 5, Illinois. Will it be good enough for Stella cherries or do we need special care in winter?
Yogesh on Mar 11, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Well, I don't have experience on cherrie trees I am learning, I planted one three years ago and die do to poor irrigation, I have planted one more and hoping it will produce in 4 years.
I think the weather in your area is fine, hope you can get cherries soon
Job DG
Is this a dwarf?
Kristen L on Apr 28, 2017
BEST ANSWER: no it will get tall as 10 t 15 feet.but I am sure that they have a smaller size for you
they are very sweet by the Gallons
Will this tree be healthy and fruit bearing with it being cold in the winter here in Cleveland ms?
Edward H on Nov 16, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Hi, ours is 2 years old now. We live in Denver and as long as we give it a couple gallons of water a week when there is no snow, it has been growing steadily. I believe this tree needs a period of cold in order to bear fruit. We've not had fruit yet on our young tree, but it has grown several inches each season. Hope that helps
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.
