Sweet Cherry Pie is a new variety cherry tree with large cherries that are sweeter than most other sour cherry varieties. Although perhaps a little tart for fresh eating, its cherries are a fantastic choice for jams, jellies, and baking. With a relatively compact growing size of 15 feet high and 12 feet wide, this tree is perfect for a home garden or small orchard. This is our hardiest variety of cherry tree in stock and does great within our region. Sweet Cherry Pie is self-fruitful so you don’t need a second tree to get fruit. These trees flower in May and the fruit ripens in mid-July. Ask our friendly sales staff to show you this great tree next time you stop by Fort Collins Nursery.
