Delicious, Easy to Grow Cherries
- Delicious fruit in half the time
- Adaptable to various types of soil
- Drought tolerant
You can grow magnificent deep red Black Tartarian Cherries yourself. As the most popular cherry, Americans spend a significant amount of money each year on the juicy and flavorful fruit. Why do that when you can grow this low maintenance plant in your own yard or even your patio?
Black Tartarians are rapid growers and produce cherries quicker than most cherry trees. We carefully prune and nurture your tree before we ship it to you. Our process ensures that you’ll get:
- More cherries
- Early production
- Healthier tree
Through our proven pruning process, these trees develop a strong branching structure that keeps the tree "dwarfed." They’ll 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.
Once established, each tree will give you an abundance of cherries every growing season. Order more than one cherry tree for optimal pollination. The more trees you have – the bigger bushel of cherries!
Pluck these delicious cherries right off the tree for a quick and healthy snack. Also, they’re great for baking (and add an impressive spin to any type of salad.)

In good shape. Waiting for buds to open.
Got in ground a month ago. got 6 foot trees worth the extra money.
Our trees were shipped and received promptly. The root rocket works fast giving the trees a nice healthy start. Very pleased with all the plants we've received from; 課ﾏPam's Fast Growing Trees課�.
It was in great health and even taller than I expected. This is the only way to get trees through the mail potted. Bare root is just not worth the risk.
Love love love the cherry tree. Came in tall and healthy. Packed very well and fast shipping. So I bought another one!
I like cherries especially black cherries I need to eat some cherries next year hopefully these trees will do that for me.
The first cherry tree that I received was that prune it in the box when it arrived that first tree did not make it. Had to order a second one it's doing fine nice healthy tree.
Planting & Care
The Black Tartarian cherry (Prunus avium ‘Black Tartarian’) is a compact cherry tree that is a great addition to any home, landscape, or orchard. Growing in USDA zones 5-8 and quickly reaching a mature height of 15 feet tall and 10 feet wide, the Black Tartarian produces loads of dark red cherries usually within the first 2 years. These cherry trees are not self fertile, so they will require an additional cherry tree for production, see the pollination chart below for compatible varieties.
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.
1) Dig a hole that is as deep as the root ball and three times as wide.
2) Place the roots in the hole and fill the hole 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.
Pollination Chart: The Black Tartarian is not self fertile and therefore requires a pollinator for your fruit to set. Here is a list of “partners” that will offer the necessary cross pollination.
