Balaton® Cherry Tree

The Balaton® cherry tree, hailing from Hungary, is celebrated for its firm, burgundy fruit ideal for culinary uses and its adaptability to a range of climates, requiring cross-pollination for optimal yield. Flourishing in well-drained, fertile soil and full sun, this late 20th-century introduction to the U.S. doubles as an ornamental and productive tree, blooming with white flowers in spring and offering a rich, flavorful harvest in mid to late summer.

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.
