Where Does the Bing Cherry Tree Grow Best?
Bings are the most popular cherries in the USA. They are very adaptable to various soil types and can be grown both outdoors and indoors where there is adequate sun, such as a patio. They are drought-tolerant and require little to no maintenance. Bing Cherry Trees need plenty of sunshine and sufficient drainage. They prefer Growing Zones 4-8.
Is it Easy to Grow Bing Cherry Trees Organically?
Organic gardeners love Bing Cherry Trees. They are native to the US, so they resist pests and diseases. You don’t need to spend all your free time spraying chemicals. Bings need only minimal maintenance to produce an abundance of sweet, organic cherries.
How Much Fruit Will I Get?
These trees have been grown and pruned for years before you get them. This gives them an advanced root system and an established branching system, meaning you’ll get fruit fast - not in 3-5 years like from other nurseries. A mature tree will produce from 50-100 pounds of fruit per year. That equates to approximately $250-$500 of grocery savings each year!
What Do Bing Cherries Taste Like?
The Bing Cherry Tree produces cherries that are large, firm, extremely juicy, and extra-sweet. The fruit is ready to harvest once it achieves a dark crimson color. Take care to pick off the cherries with the stems attached for maximum shelf life and storage. Bing cherries are perfect for baking in cakes, pies, and tarts, and are also popular in use for preserves. They make a great snack right off the tree, too!
Pollination and Fruiting Season
You can expect to see fruit from early spring to late fall. The Bing Cherry requires cross-pollination to produce large amounts of cherries. It pollinates well with any sweet cherry variety, like the Black Tartarian or Rainier. They store well, too - keep them in the refrigerator and they will last for several weeks.
Best Time to Plant
Plant your Bing Cherry Tree at any time of year, just as long as your ground is not frozen. We recommend getting your tree in the ground as soon as possible, so it has plenty of time to get adjusted to your climate. Once it has, it will quickly produce bushels of cherries.
