The Prunus Avium 'Rainier' - Rainier Cherry Tree is one of the most in-demand varieties, for both its taste and beauty. Large, yellow fruit with a half-red blush; birds are less attracted, due to the yellow half. Very firm, sweet flesh has a fine texture and distinct, outstanding flavor. Bud-hardy and crack-resistant, making it the cherry of choice for backyard gardeners. A cross of the Bing and Van varieties. Prefers well-drained soil. Excellent for baking, canning, freezing and eating out of hand. Ripens end of May/early June, depending upon growing zone. Stores well. 
Rainier is not self-pollinating and will require another variety such as the Stella cherry tree to cross-pollinate with.

Full sun to partial sun.

Attracts birds, bees and butterflies.
