Black Cherry Tree Description

Black Cherry Tree

Black Cherry Tree, or Prunus serotina as it is known botanically, is the only native cherry tree with commercial value.

A deciduous tree found throughout the Eastern United States, the Black Cherry Tree is also called wild black cherry, rum cherry, and mountain black cherry. Black Cherry Trees bear lightly serrated, shiny, dark green leaves that turn shades of yellow-gold and red in the fall. Black Cherry Trees have low branches that droop and brush the ground, especially when their conical to ovoid-shaped fruit is ripe. Black Cherry Trees showcases 5-inch long white flowers in early spring. The flower change into reddish-black edible cherries in the summer. Black Cherry Tree can be used in jams, jellies, and liqueurs. Your Black Cherry Tree will grow between 60 to 90 feet tall.

 

Care and Consideration

The Black Cherry Tree prefers some sun exposure yet can live very well in dappled shade. This tree can thrive in many soil types yet will require watering when planting. Pick a location that is away from structures or buildings since the fruit, when ripe drops, unless you pick the fruit right away.

When planting your Black Cherry Tree, ensure that the area it is planted in remains weed free. You should mulch around the base of the tree to keep moisture around the root ball. Once established, it is best not to move your Black Cherry Tree since its root system is shallow, and doing so will damage the tree irrevocably. 

Considerations

The Black Cherry Tree is particularly fond of moist yet cool, moist summers. For the best establishment, the Black Cherry Tree requires a frost-free growing season of 120 to 155 days. This is a fast-growing tree with fruit ripening from late June through mid-September, depending on your region. Black Chery Trees are attractive to a plethora of birds and wildlife that eat the fruit. Caterpillars also enjoy Black Cherry Tree fruit. Tent caterpillars are the only pest that will harm this tree. 

 

As consideration for a woodland-style fruit tree, the Black Cherry Tree is an excellent choice.

 

Black Cherry Trees are available at TN Nursery at low prices with fast shipping.

    It shipped fast and arrived in good condition. I would have liked it to have a few more limbs, but not a deal breaker.
