Emperor Francis Cherry Tree

The Emperor Francis Cherry Tree is celebrated for its large, heart-shaped cherries with a vibrant yellow-red skin and sweet flavor, thriving in USDA zones 5-7 with white spring flowers that add ornamental value. Requiring a pollinator like Bing or Black Tartarian for fruit production, it demands full sun, well-drained soil, and regular care, making it a favorite for both its delicious cherries and aesthetic appeal.

General Tree Height/Caliper: Most of our fruit trees (apple, peach, apricot, plum, pear, nectarine, quince, and cherry) are grafted/budded and are 4-6' tall with a caliper/diameter of about 1/4-3/4". Most have more than 5' height and 1/2" diameter. The other trees are seedlings, such as pawpaw, mulberry, persimmon, shade, berry, and flowering trees which range from 18-36" tall.

A rootstock primarily controls a tree's size and how early it bears fruit. Learn more about our specific rootstocks.
