Product Description

Bushels of Cherries the First Year in the Golden State

Why Rainier Cherry Trees?

The Rainier Cherry Tree is a heavy producer, generating an early harvest of big, juicy cherries. And Rainier Cherries are some of the sweetest available.

You've most likely bought these at your grocery store, as they're the most popular cherries in America. And now, they're ready to take off in your California garden.

The Rainier Cherry Tree is super easy to grow. This hardy tree can adapt to nearly any soil type, and though it requires cross-pollination to fruit, it’s simple to purchase and plant the Bing or Black Tartarian Cherry Trees for tons of cherries, faster.

Pollination Info

Rainier Cherry Tree Pollination

Rainier 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: The Rainier prefers full sun but will tolerate some shade - select a location that receives at least 6 to 8 hours of sunlight per day for best results. Also, select an area with well-drained soil. 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, backfill 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 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.
