Is This Plant Self Pollinating?

Lapins Cherry Tree is self-fertile, but the fruit crop will be larger if the tree is planted with a second tree.

Planting & Care

Cherries require good draining soils. If you suspect poor drainage consider mounding or raised beds. Plant in full sun in a location favoring the morning sun. Cherries require 8 hours of sun. Be careful to avoid locations where cold air or frost will settle. Choose a protected location that is sheltered from wind. Cherries prefer well-drained soil. Water regularly, being careful not to over water during the first year. Keep the soil evenly moist but not wet. Cherries do not like wet feet! Mulching helps retain moisture in the surface root zone and keeps the root cool in the hot summer. Mulch to 3 to 4 inches deep and 3 to 4 feet outside the canopy 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.
