Self-Fertile Cherry Tree and Fruit in 1 Year
Why Lapins Cherry Trees?
The irresistible sweetness of cherries will become a summer family tradition when you purchase the Lapins Cherry Tree. When harvest time arrives, your Lapins will produce 15 to 20 gallons of the succulent fruit.
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. Plus, it’s low-maintenance, thriving in a variety of soil types, tolerant temperatures down to -10 degrees and producing fruit on its own, without a pollinator.

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.
Estimated Shipping Time: Most orders ship immediately. As noted on the website, some items are seasonal, and may only ship in spring or fall. Once your order is shipped, you'll receive an email with a tracking number.

Both cherry trees seem to be holding on in the WV mostly clay soil. They get a lot of wind here too but I've seen new growth so I think they're going to make it because of their well developed root system from Fast Growing Trees.
Lapins Cherry Tree
Tree is great and I’m very optimistic that my Lapin Cherry tree will bear some cherries next year together with my Bing cherry tree .
So Far so Good
Tree is young and I won’t know until next season if and when it produces fruit how well it is doing. Looks good right now only had it in the ground for 3 weeks.
