dwarf cherry tree

garrai81May 29, 2013

I am trying to find a dwarf cherry tree for myself and my son, for eating, not for cooking or otherwise.

Everyone tells me to get a dwarf bing, but I cannot locate any in our area (St Helens/Scappoose).

I can find only the Van dwarf cherry.

Will the Van be good for eating right off the tree?

Thanks for any thoughts.

Yes, Van is good eating - similar to Bing. But you will need another sweet cherry cultivar to cross pollinate and get fruit. Or you can look for a self-fertile variety like Sweetheart, Stella or Lapins.

Try Raintree Nursery in Morton, WA - not too far a drive and an excellent fruit nursery

Thanks, but that is a 2-hour drive one way.

Too much for me.

I will try to find the Sweetheart, Stella or Lapins locally.
