Black Tartarian Cherry Tree

If you love the sweet and juicy flavors of fresh, ripe, dark cherries and you spend a pretty penny on them when in season at the grocery store, you're ready to start your backyard orchard with a Black Tartarian cherry tree. This variety is popular in home orchards because the cherry is so sweet and delicious, but also because the Black Tartarian is a great producer. Plant this tree and get ready to harvest bushels of fresh fruit in the summer.

The Black Tartarian cherry is a dark, sweet and juicy variety of cherry that is best enjoyed fresh off the tree or juiced. Imagine being able to walk out your backdoor and pick a handful of these deep-red beauties for a tasty and nutritious snack. In addition to being a delightful treat, these cherries offer a nutritional punch with abundant antioxidants, vitamins and fiber.

These cherries are tastiest when fresh, but that doesn't mean you can't enjoy them in other ways. Black Tartarians make flavorful juices and wines. You can freeze them to use over the winter. They also make stunning preserves and jams with rich, dark color and a wonderful flavor to match. You can even use these sweet cherries in savory dishes and baked goods.

If your mouth is watering but you never thought you could start an orchard in your backyard, our trees will help you make the dream a reality. You don't need a lot of space or a ton of experience to make this work. We do the hard work for you by taking the time to grow and train trees that are ready to produce abundant fruit. All you need to do is put the tree in the ground. You can even grow these cherries organically because we develop trees that are resistant to pests and diseases.

Your Black Tartarian will benefit from a pollinating partner. This can be nearly any other variety or cherry, which means you can pick the perfect complement to these sweet gems and get a double harvest of two different kinds of cherries each summer. Just find a couple of sunny spots in your backyard, order our trees, and put them in the ground. In your very first spring with these trees you'll get beautiful flowers, and by the summer you will be picking fresh, delicious cherries by the bushel.

Planting & Care

Planting and caring for your new fruit tree is easy. To get started, find a good spot in your yard or a large container. The location should have good drainage and adequate sunlight. For a container, be sure there are drainage holes in the bottom and that it is large enough for the root ball to fit with some extra room.

In the yard, dig a hole that is a few inches shallower than the height of the root ball and three times as wide. The roots need room to spread outwards, but you don't want it to sit too deep in the hole. If your soil is especially dense and compacted, you may need to go out wider and loosen up the soil.

Before placing the root ball in the hole or container, pull the roots gently to space them out a little and cut off any damaged roots. Place the tree into the hole or container, ensuring that the point at which the roots meet the trunk is going to be an inch or two above the surrounding soil.

Carefully add the soil back into the hole or add your potting mix to the container. It helps to have one person hold the tree upright while you do this. It helps to keep the tree straight. As you fill in the soil, take steps to prevent air pockets from forming by removing large pieces of debris, breaking up large, dense clumps of soil, and water a little at a time. The soil should slope downward from the trunk to prevent water pooling around the roots, but the tops of the largest roots should protrude from the soil.

Water your new tree thoroughly to settle the soil. Water it again when the top two-inch layer of soil dries out. As your tree grows and the roots develop, you can water less often. Your tree will arrive pruned, so you only need to prune it once a year, in early spring, to keep its shape and to promote more fruit development, or to keep it small if you are growing in a container.

Fertilizer is not always necessary. If your tree grows well and looks healthy, it probably doesn't need any feeding. If you are not happy with how fast it is growing, of if you notice any signs of poor nutrition, you can apply an appropriate fertilizer once or twice a year. Our trees are hardy and you should not need to spray for pests or disease.

Shipping

Most items ship the next business day unless otherwise noted


We take pride in accurate and on-time shipping dates. Of course there are factors that could delay these dates. These are estimates, and we cannot guarantee exact shipping dates. Shipping live products has its challenges and occasionally Mother Nature does not abide by our time frames. On rare occasions we have to delay shipping due to severe weather forecasts in your area or ours. Sometimes the seasons are delayed and plants take longer to reach specifications. Although these types of delays are rare, we try to keep you informed. The health of your plants is our highest concern.


Spring Shipping
Due to the nature of certain cold sensitive plants, it is best to ship them during months with milder temperatures. Spring shipped items are identified on their product page, as well as information on Northern States that ship in spring. Most trees and plants we carry can safely be planted year-round, but you may prefer planting in warmer weather. If you would like to receive a plant earlier than designated or delay its delivery date, we are happy to schedule what’s most convenient. Just call us at 1-888-286-1004.

What Will I Receive

Will my Trees Look Like the Photographs?

Most trees and plants on the website are pictured in their mature form. Depending on the product and growth rate, mature development can take years for your plant to resemble the photos.


Picture the last time you took a walk in the woods. The young trees were not miniature bonsai versions of mature trees. Instead they were naturally thin and lanky. Young trees are programmed to race toward the light, before the competing vegetation crowds them out. Once established, they start developing a wide canopy and shedding lower limbs.

Pruning & Trimming

Most Fruiting Plants Are Pruned Before Shipping... At No Cost To You!

Pruning makes plants appear to be less-full than the ones you may have seen at your local big box garden center. A retailer's goal is to have plants look their best while sitting in the store. Our goal is to have them look the best after you plant them.


Pruned trees and shrubs not only travel better, but become established much quicker. So rather than supporting extra foliage, they put their energy into sending out deep roots. Once that happens, your plants become hardier and quickly explode with new top growth. Above the ground, pruning helps your plants develop a more attractive form.
