Stella Cherry Tree (Sweet) makes a great home garden tree, showing off your green-finger skills as a gardener and offering loads of luscious, dark red cherries! The tree is a self fertile fruit tree, so you will not need another cherry tree to pollinate it. It makes a great choice for new gardeners and is also ideal for those who are more experienced and grow orchards.
Prunus avium 'Stella' offers fruit which is large, luscious with a rich red colour. They have a sweet flavour and are very juicy. Eat them straight off the tree or use in cooking to whip up a cherry pie, jams, jellies, an icy jug of fresh cherry juice for the kids or a delectable cherry sorbet.
The tree has an upright spreading habit with tall branches covered in mid-green leaves. In spring it puts on a show with masses of pretty white flowers. The flowers are lightly scented and attract butterflies into your garden, creating movement and interest. The fruits are ready for picking in late July. This tree thrives well in deep, moist but well-drained soil and will be very productive in sheltered sites.
Known for its reliability and outstanding flavour, the Stella Cherry Tree holds an RHS Award of Garden Merit.
