After a calm late April rain I captured this video.  The scent of the blooms is very lite but the view of the tree as the pedals start to fall is bold.  Enjoy the video and be sure to check out the images featured below the video.

This tree is spectacular year-round in our home garden.  The spring blooms come on just after the Magnolia tree starts to drop its blooms.  How to identify a cherry tree is somewhat easy.  I also check out the bark of the tree. Cherry has this unique circle around the tree trunk that is kind of a grey color.

The blooms of the Dark Tartarian Cherry tree are lovely in the mid Spring.  The blooms last for a few weeks or until a late wind storm comes through in the spring. The shape of the tree fills the back orchard entrance at our home in Ohio.

I hope this post encourages you to consider adding a cherry to your home garden.  The tree has been around since the early 1700 in the USA brought over from Russia.

Driveway Cherry Trees

It is recommended to plant another cherry tree within 50 feet. Cross-pollination by a different variety is key to its growing and bearing success. This will ensure prepare pollination.  We have another cherry on the other side of the driveway.  About 30 feet out is a Bing Cherry and Rainer Cherry Tree.

I am excited to hear from you and what you think of this tree.  Be sure to comment n this post.  Would you consider adding a Black Tartarian to your home garden? You will have to come back later in the summer to see the harvest off this tree. We pick so many cherries there is plenty to share with the wildlife.  I’d love to hear suggestions on what you would prepare with tons of cherries.

Happy Tree Hunting,

  1. I just planted a 6.5 foot semi-dwarf Tartarian at my home in upstate NY. I planted it close to a White Gold cherry tree (self fertile). I have been keeping it well watered the past couple of weeks, and it looks good.

    The White Gold (semi-dwarf) is just over 5 years old after planting and it has 5 inch lower trunk (12 -15 feet high). It is now full of bud clusters – some clusters have up to 8 buds. Hopefully, I will get a good yield from it next year. This year I only got 40 – 50 cherries out of it. I had to put fruit bags on the clusters to keep the Robins away.

    The Tartarian was planted on the north end of my house in a shaded area so I hope it still is able to produce cherries at some point.

  2. Hey Frank – great to hear about your cherry tree planting. The White Gold Cherry Tree is new to me. Starks Bro site says ” Developed in Geneva, New York, introduced circa 2003. Ripens in June. Self-pollinating.” I might have to look into adding one to our home orchard. Let me know how that tree produces. The fact that the semi-dwarf only gets 15-18 feet tall is nice. This past summer was had a ‘cherry picker’ my husband rebuilt out of the barn and used to pick bushels of cherry’s off of the Tartarian tree in this blog post.

    You inspired me to share a post about the harvest this year from the Black Tartarian Cherry. I hope you check it out: https://brenhaas.com/black-tartarian-harvest/
