Bing cherries are a sweet cherry, used almost exclusively for fresh market. They are large, dark and firm cherries that ship well, but will crack open if exposed to rain near harvest, making it especially important to not water your tree as it bears fruit. A dry-summer climate is required for the harvest of the Bing cherry, making them especially well adapted to the climate of Nova Scotia. Skin and flesh are both a burgundy-red. The large fruit is firm, juicy and sweet.

This product is a 2 year old tree – it comes as bare root stock and will require immediate planting upon receipt. A different variety of cherry is required for pollination. However Stella cherry is not a good 2nd choice as it doesn’t always result in a good crop.
