Delicious, Easy-to-Grow Cherries in 1 Year

Why Black Tartarian Cherry Trees?

There’s no need for trips to the grocery store when you grow the low-maintenance, highly productive Black Tartarian Tree at home. With the Black Tartarian, you’ll get delicious cherries in one year, adaptability to various soil types and drought tolerance for ease of growth.

Black Tartarians are rapid, hassle-free growers. That means more cherries, earlier, without any effort on your part. Especially since we carefully plant, monitor and nurture your tree before we ship it to you.

Why Fast-Growing-Trees.com is Better

Through our proven process, our Black Tartarian Trees develop a strong branching structure that keeps the tree "dwarfed." They’ll only grow to a height that is safe for picking, and they’re healthy and robust long before you plant them in your own landscape. We’ve put in the extra work so that you get ease and peace of mind…along with tons of fresh cherries, year after year!

And though you need more than one cherry tree to produce fruit, you’ll have tons in the first year. Plus, more trees mean even more fruit. Order your own Black Tartarian Cherry Tree today!

Pollination Info

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

1. Planting: Choose a sunny spot that will give your Tartarian 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 - well-drained soil is best.

When you're ready to plant, dig a hole that's three times the width of the root ball and just as deep. Place your tree, back fill the soil, tamp down and water to settle the roots. Spread a layer of mulch around the surrounding soil to preserve moisture.

2. 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. If you're not sure when to water, however, simply check the soil about 2 or 3 inches down. If the soil here is dry, it's time to water.

3. Pruning: A year after planting your Black Cherry Tree, prune during winter. Shape the tree to encourage horizontal branch growth with space between branches. And prune once a year as necessary to remove weak, drooping branches.

4. Fertilizing: Fertilize in the spring and mid-summer 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 - 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.

Tips: In colder climates, avoid fertilizing after mid-summer to prevent new growth that won’t harden before fall frosts.

5. Pollination: 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:

Bing Cherry Tree
Lapins Cherry Tree
Montmorency Cherry
Rainier Cherry Tree
Stella Cherry Tree
Royal Ann Cherry Tree

Healthy tree

I got a very large dormant tree that started sprouting before I even potted it. It's pruned nicely and very tall. Looks healthy.

the third year

this is my third year with this tree because I bought the smaller one. it is slow growing but....the quality of the growth is great so I am happy with that part. I have 2 bing cherry trees that are a couple of years older than this tree and they have put cherries on but never got to any size. not sure Missouri is a good state to grow them in but they are very healthy and have grown well. I planted all my trees on raised soil in a box and they have all thrived. can't wait to see if I get cherries this year. with things being as expensive as they are I am grateful I planted them a few years ago and am praying for a big fruit harvest this year. I will revisit this site for a further review after spring.

Black tartartian

Don't know yet. It was dormant when delivered. It had its roots wrapped in burlap. All trees I have bought from you like that have all died. So would prefer one of your potted trees. But the tree was well wrapped, watered and appeared in good shape.



We're very sorry that some of your trees didn't do well and glad we were able to get you credit for those. Please reach out to us by the end of May if you have any concerns about your tree leafing back out and we'll be happy to help!
