Product Description

Uniquely-Shaped, Robust Cherries

Why Star Cherry Trees?

The tropical-inspired Star Cherry boasts some of the most unique-looking and robust cherries available. For starters, these cherries grow up to 2 inches in width and feature deep, ribbed indentions in a star shape. So, the Star Cherry is not only a second-to-none producer, but it’s also ideal for visual interest too.

And the Star Cherry’s flavor is amazing. Tender and amazingly juicy, this fruit’s taste is comparable to an apricot or passion fruit. And there’s plenty to create in the kitchen with this cherry’s exotic, tart taste – it pairs famously with vanilla ice cream, as a topping for cheesecakes, in smoothies and beyond.

Plus, the Star Cherry Tree is versatile. It grows well in a container or in the ground, so it thrives from gardens to patios or even along streets. And the Star Cherry produces white flowers and rich, sizable cherries for months, adapting to any soil type or condition…including drought and freezing temperatures.

Why Fast-Growing-Trees.com is Better

But the best part about our Star Cherry Tree is that it’s a proven performer, grafted from root stock rather than grown from seed. That means you get consistent size, shape and fruiting, year over year. You get the same great-tasting Star Cherries season after season because we’ve put in the hard work at our nursery, long before your Star Cherry arrives to your door.

Imagine fresh, one-of-a-kind cherries in just a few growing seasons. Order your own Star Cherry Tree now!

Not letting George Washington near these little beauties

The shipping was really fast, especially from Oregon to Seattle. Trees look healthy and happy in present pots. Only had to trim two broken branches on one tree. The loamy soil retains moisture. Glad I don't have to transplant them until they outgrow the containers--I was ready to drill holes in two 20 gallon tuffcoat plastic cans was not looking forward to the weight of those with soil. I already see new buds forming. Got sample cherries from a large tree in Kauai in February. Their name for it is Surinam cherry. Had nice conversation with Jamela in SC when ordering. Overall, great!

Planting & Care

1. Planting: For your Star, 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, back fill the soil, tamp down and water to settle the roots. Spread a layer of mulch around the surrounding soil to preserve moisture, and plant at least 4 feet away from other trees to allow ample space.

If you're outside of warmer zones, plant your Star in a container to bring indoors during the winter. Ideally, the pot should measure at least 18 to 24 inches in diameter and have sides that stand at least 20 inches in height. The pot should have drainage holes at the base so water can free flow away from the tree’s roots.

2. Watering: Lightly water the Surinam cherry tree so the soil feels moist to the touch. Do not water the tree again until the top two inches of soil has dried completely out. Generally, the tree thrives with a once-a-week watering schedule. In tropical areas with frequent rain showers, the tree only needs infrequent supplemental water.

3. Pruning: The Star should be pruned immediately after flowering if shaping is desired. Avoid removing more than a third of the tree’s limbs each season. Diseased or damaged limbs need to be immediately removed.

4. Fertilizing: Use a water-soluble fertilizer during the growing season to encourage fruit production. Follow the instructions on the fertilizer’s label for application ratios.
