Is This Plant Self Pollinating?

Black Tartarian Cherry requires a pollenizer. You must plant one of these trees nearby (within about 50') for the tree to produce a crop of fruit.

Description

Prunus avium 'black tartarian'

Black Tartarian cherries are large and deep red to purplish-black. The sweet, rich flavor is irresistible; perfect for fresh-eating and juice. Black Tartarian cherry is a very popular variety that originated from the Circassia region of what is now Russia, and was introduced to the U.S. in the late 1700s. The showy white flowers are a bonus.

Planting & Care

Cherries grow best in full sun in a location where cold air or frost will not settle. Choose a protected location that is sheltered from wind. Water regularly, at least weekly, during the first year. Keep the soil evenly moist but not wet. Deep soak established trees when the top few inches of the soil is dry. Cherries prefer well-drained soil. Mulching helps retain moisture and stabilize the soil temperature. When harvesting cherries, pick them with the stems attached, and avoid tearing off the fruit spur that will produce fruit year after year. An added bonus with cherry trees is the beautiful blossoms that precede the fruit each spring.
