    A very popular species of sweet cherry, the Black Tartarian makes a great choice for home orchards. It produces large, purplish-black fruit with a sweet, rich, full-bodied flavor that is great for fresh eating and preserves. This cultivar is also the best pollinator for other dark sweet cherries.

    • Produces large juicy, purplish-black fruit from mid-June to early July— ideal for fresh eating and preserves
    • Bears fruit in 3–4 years
    • Blooms early, with clusters of white flowers
    • Requires cross-pollination — we suggest Bing
    • Will be delivered at a height of 3'–4'
