Cherry - Black Tartarian

Prunus avium 'Black Tartarian.'
USDA Hardiness Zones: 5,6,7,8

The Black Tartarian Fruiting Cherry Tree is an heirloom variety brought to the United States in the late 1700s. This stunning deciduous tree boasts luscious deep purple-black cherries that are irresistibly sweet and juicy. with a moderate growth rate, this variety thrives in growing zones 5-8 and can reach a mature height of up to 20 ft. Its broad, glossy green foliage beautifully contrasts with the dark bark, creating a visually striking and picturesque silhouette. Enjoy the bountiful harvest of this exquisite tree, perfect for fresh snacking, baking pies or making delightful preserves. The cherry tree grows best in full Sun, slightly acidic and loamy soil and needs another sweet cherry tree to cross pollinate. We recommend Bing, Rainier Sweet, Stella or Napoleon cherry. The Black Tartarian Cherry Tree is a must-have for fruit lovers and those seeking a touch of opulence in their garden.

How to Plant
STEP 1) First, decide on a planting location. Consider carefully what kind of sun, soil, and growing-space your tree or shrub will need.
STEP 2) Once you've located the perfect spot, the hole you are digging must be at least double the width and as deep as the root system you are planting.
STEP 3) Remove the plant from the pot and place the root ball in the hole. The top of the root system should be level with the ground. Before placing the tree or shrub in the hole, use your hands to gently break up the root system.
STEP 4) Once the plant is in place, backfill the hole with native soil and any leftover potting material.
STEP 5) Pack down the soil to eliminate any air pockets.
STEP 6) When finished, water thoroughly.
