The deep red fruit produced by Organic Stella Cherry Trees is so popular it's stocked in the fruit sections of many of the major supermarkets in the UK - but we're pretty sure the taste of this juicy dessert cherry doesn't compare with your own home grown Stella fruits!
Organic Stella cherry trees are self fertile and will flourish in a sunny location and as these bare-rooted, maiden trees are grown on the semi dwarfing Gisela 5 rootstock, they'll produce more than manageable bush trees and are ready-made for fan training along a south facing wall or fence. You can expect to pick the delicious, dark red cherries in late July and don't forget to prune the trees shortly afterwards to avoid the unwanted spread of the silverleaf disease. Using Fruit Tree Sleeves on your organic Stella cherries will protect the fruits from birds, meaning more of these garden gastronomic treats for you and your kitchen!
Organic Stella Cherry Trees are despatched in bare-root form between November and March.

Planting and Delivery Information
Planting - do not attempt to plant your fruit trees when the ground is frozen or waterlogged. The trees can be stored in their packaging in an outbuilding or garage for 2-3 days, or can be heeled into the soil where the ground is not as frozen. Alternatively, plant up in large pots or containers and ensure the roots have good contact with the soil.
