Sweetheart Cherry Tree

The Sweetheart cherry tree, developed from a selective breeding program to combine the best traits of cherry species, is renowned for its large, heart-shaped, late-summer ripening cherries with a sweet-tangy flavor, and thrives in USDA hardiness zones 5-7. As a self-fertile, moderate-height tree, it not only extends the cherry season but also enhances the aesthetic appeal of gardens with its beautiful blossoms and foliage, necessitating well-drained soil, regular watering, and annual pruning for optimal growth and fruit production.

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.
