Black Tartarian Cherry
A large and vigorously growing cherry tree that makes a great pollinator for other sweet cherries. Tree produces lingering white flowers in mid-Spring and its great height allow for insects and birds to spread pollen to other cherries. The flowers mature to small, dark red, heart shaped cherries. Their dark flesh is mildly juicy and tartly-sweet. The cherries are often used in pies and canning but can easily be eaten off the tree. The tree is tolerant of many soil consistencies but must be well drained and free of standing water.
