If you only have space to grow one fruit tree, grow this one! 'Stella' cherry is self-fertile (which means it does not need a second variety of cherry tree to pollinate it) and is a really heavy, reliable cropper because it has good resistance to late frosts.
Unlike most other sweet cherry varieties, it will thrive in slightly exposed locations but can also be grown in a pot on your patio.
The sweetly flavoured, dark-skinned, plump and juicy aromatic fruits will be ready to pick from mid to late July each year. From the third growing season onwards, you can expect upwards of 5kg (11lb) of sweet fruits per tree, which will save a small fortune compared to paying supermarket prices! Additionally, the beautiful cherry blossom, which appears from early March, will brighten your garden and mark the beginning of spring.
Our grower-quality, multi-branched trees have been grafted on to G5 rootstock to provide a compact and manageable habit, which in this case will reach approx. 2m (6-7ft) tall.
