Is This Plant Self Pollinating?

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


Prunus avium

As the name suggests, Sweetheart is a large, bright red heart-shaped cherry with good flavor. Sweetheart cherry gives you showy, white spring blooms followed by big harvests of big, juicy, sweet berries without the need of another pollinating variety planted nearby. They're great fresh off the tree, and also canned or frozen.

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.
