Sweet and Decadent Mouth-Watering Fruit in 1 Year

Why Stella Cherry Trees?

Love cherries? Don't wait for them. We devote years to growing and pruning these trees so that your Stella Cherry Tree produces fruit in the very first year!

Plus, it’s ideal for small spaces. If your gardening space is limited, the Stella is perfect. And unlike most other Cherry Trees that require two to bear fruit, Stella is a self-pollinator, so you only need a single tree to have bushels of your own juicy cherries every season (though more trees mean more fruit). These cherries are ideal for snacking, baking, canning and freezing for maximum versatility.

Pollination Info

Stella Cherry Tree Pollination

Stella 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 tree 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 - choose an area with well-drained soil. When you're ready to plant, dig a hole that's as deep as the root ball and about three times the width. Then, place the tree, back fill the soil and water to settle the roots. Finally, spread a layer of mulch over 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. This will allow the water to penetrate the soil more deeply and prevent it from running off over the soil surface. Make sure the ground is fully moisturized all around the root system.

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

3. Pruning: A year after planting your tree, prune your tree 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 - but 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.

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

Good so far

Shipping was fast and true arrived healthy. After planting (in October) it kept its leaves for another 3 weeks as it established. Looking forward to next year and the harvest it will produce.

Stella Cherry tree

Pretty impressive. Tree was a real tree, tall and sturdy trunk with a big solid root ball in a good sized pot. This tree will thrive.

Beautiful Trees!

This is our second fruit tree from Fast Growing Trees. The first one is growing so well and I’m very happy with it! The only problem I had was that the deer targeted these young trees so I had to cover them while they are small! But I’m quite happy with them!
