And you’ll get this sweet-tasting harvest in just one year. Vibrant blooms in the spring then transition into a summer bounty of delectable sweet cherries after only the first year.

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...
Planting & Care
1. Planting: Choose a sunny spot that will give your Lapins 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.
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 Lapins 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.

Lapins Cherry Tree 3-4 ft.
Like most people, during the quarantine I bought several trees/plants to keep me busy while staying at home. I found this company online with great reviews so I took a chance. SO GLAD I DID! I bought 4 different trees and a berry bush from them which I left reviews on each of those as well. I live in Georgia so the trees/plants I ordered are specific to my area. I am a review person and love when people give details and show pictures. It really helps with decisions. The review I am leaving will be from when I ordered last year to today which is a 13 month time period. On April 23, 2020, I placed the order with an expected ship date of May 5, 2020. I actually received the shipment on May 2, 2020 so early delivery was a plus from the start! All my trees came shipped beautifully. I couldn't be happier with my trees as you can see from the timeline of photos. The photos are dated as follows: 1. Just Planted (05/02/20) 2. Growing some (08/04/20) 3. Waking up from the winter & sprouting new limbs (03/29/21) 4. Whoa she grew limbs fast and they got heavy on her! (04/17/21) 5. Trimmed back all the heavy limbs to let her flourish more (06/03/21) Even though I'm not sure when any cherries will be growing, the tree is beautiful to look at and it definitely makes the yard more appealing! If you have any doubts, don't and just buy the tree, you won't be disappointed! :)
My little survivor
The tree was damaged during shipment. I contacted Customer service the day after the tree arrived and a replacement was sent immediately. However, it seems this little tree is not about to give up as it kept the leaves green below the break. That's a great sign for me. I would definitely recommend.
