About the Stella Cherry Tree :

The Stella cherry is self-fruitful - no pollenizer needed. It has a large, nearly black, richly flavored sweet cherry. Similar to its parent, Lambert. Expect a later harvest with the Stella cherry. It will pollinate with the Bing cherry tree, except in mild winter climates. The flesh is also black in color.

It is an excellent cherry for fresh eating. It is also resistant to cracking. Tree bears at a young age. Tree eventually reaches 15 to 16 feet tall. Watch for birds, they love the Stella.


Cherry Tree History

The cherries most popular for eating have derived primarily from the Wild Cherry (P. avium), which has given rise to the Sweet Cherry to which most cherry cultivars belong. The Sour Cherry (P. cerasus) is used mainly for cooking. Both species originate in Europe and western Asia; they do not cross-pollinate each other.
