This North Star Cherry Tree comes established in a 2 Gallon pot

Type: Deciduous fruit tree

Size: Compact growth habit, reaching up to 8-10 feet in height and spread, making it an ideal choice for small gardens or as a feature in larger landscapes.

Zone: Hardy in USDA Zones 4-8, offering wide adaptability to different climates.

This self-fertile variety does not require a pollinator to produce fruit, making it an excellent choice for gardeners with limited space for multiple trees. However, planting another cherry variety nearby can enhance fruit production.

Expect to harvest your cherries in early to mid-summer, typically in June or July, when they are ripe and full of flavor. The North Star produces medium to large, bright red cherries with a tart flavor, perfect for pies, jams, or fresh eating.

Soil: Prefers well-drained, loamy soil with a neutral to slightly acidic pH.

Sunlight: Thrives in full sun, requiring at least 6-8 hours of direct sunlight daily.

Watering: Keep the soil consistently moist, especially during the first growing season to establish a deep, extensive root system. Once established, they are more drought tolerant.

Pruning: Prune in late winter to early spring to remove any dead or overlapping branches and to encourage a strong, productive structure.

Best time to plant: Spring
