Fruiting Cherry Trees - Size Ranges From 3-5 feet in height
The Advantages Of Planting Cherry Trees
Not only is a cherry tree beautiful to grow for its delicious fruit, but it also yields other beneficial assets. For example, these fruit trees are planet-friendly. They act as a filter for the air by absorbing carbon dioxide and purifying the atmosphere with fresh oxygen.
Cherry trees enhance one's lawn by keeping it healthy with excellent shading and less use of water. These attractive trees also deliver beautiful spring blooms.
Some figure that cherry trees are difficult to plant and produce a high crop, but that is the opposite.
Cherry trees like those bearing favorite fruit from the Bing, Black Tartarian, and Ranier varieties are natural, low maintenance plants that grow fast and become a smart, long-term investment for one's landscaping. In about five years, these beautiful trees will begin to bear abundant fruit.
The Bing cherry tree will thrive in hardiness zones of 5-8. At maturity, this plant will reach a height of about 35 feet with a spread of about 25 feet.
The Bing prefers full sunlight with a well-drained sandy soil and is an early spring bloomer with fragrant clusters of white flowers.
The Black Tartarian cherry tree is another fast-growing plant that yields a dark cherry fruit. Like the Bing, it grows best in hardiness zones 5-8 and flourishes in full sunlight with well-drained soil.
The Black Tartarian reaches about 15 feet in height for full maturity with a spread of about 10 feet.
The Ranier cherry tree is another option to consider with its different yield of yellow fruit. The plant prefers hardiness zones of 5-9 with full sunlight and is adaptable to various soil conditions. When mature, the Ranier will stand at about 15 feet high with a 12-foot spread.
The Ranier features pretty, pink-tinted white blossoms in spring.
All three cherry tree varieties are not self-fertile. These plants need a pollination partner of a different type nearby to achieve fruiting.
