Zone 3 - 8
From a landscaping sense, Evans cherry features beautiful white flowers in spring, the fruits are very showy, and the trees are quite compact in habit. But let?s be honest - this plant stands apart because of its fruit. A phenomenal producer of large bright red cherries, juicy as you can imagine, with small pits. The tree is self-pollinating, so a second variety is not required for fruit production. Known as sour or tart cherries, but, if left on the tree long enough, the fruits develop their sugars and become wonderfully delicious to snack right off the tree!

Lapin Cherries are the largest cherries you can find... just one cherry is a mouthful! Not only are they sweet and huge, but juicy as well. Even though you can only fit one in your mouth, it won?t be enough. Lapin Cherries give you so much flavor you?ll be eating them in handfuls. Great for snacking fresh from the tree, or for baking into pies or using for preserves. Self-pollinating
Zone 4 - 8
Not a lot of space? This compact tree is the ideal size for a backyard orchard. Beautiful white flowers in spring followed by loads of bright red sour cherries in mid summer; needs full sun and well-drained soil, self-pollinating and hardy.
A note from George:
Now, cherries are divided into two groups, sweet and sour. Sour cherries are pie cherries. All cherries are self-fertile.
