Sweet Original and Lerie Cherries

Sweet cherries are the ones most often found in markets. They have a thick, rich, and almost plum-like texture. Traditionally, sweet cherry trees are self-sterile and best for an orchard or in a garden. You’ll need at least two or three trees so that they can pollinate each other. However, a recent and exciting development in sweet cherries is the dwarf self-pollinating.

Sweet cherries produce delicious fruit and are usually grown as small open trees, garden or fences. They can also be grown in large containers – and if you choose a self-fertile cultivate, they will fruit without a pollination partner. Acid cherries are self-fertile, tolerate some shade and are ideal for a north-facing wall. Their fruits are excellent for cooking and make delicious jam.

Acid cherries are less vigorous, grows to a height and spread of 3-3.5m (10-12ft).

Some sweet cherries need pollination partners, others are self fertile, producing fruit on a single tree. Acid cherries are self-fertile. Cherries flower early in the year, if frost is forecast, protect the blossom with horticultural fleece, removing it during the day to allow access to pollinating insects.
