Ask a Question
  • I currently have the vandalay cherry. What other dark sweet cherry varieties suitable for zone 7 would be a good cross pollinator for the vandalay cherry? Thank you.

    Terhanivee or Black Gold will do well for cross pollination.

  • I purchased and received the 4'-5' dwarf tree and it looks great. Wondering though, how old is the tree that I received?

    3 years old when shipped

  • What color are the blooms?

Quality cherry tree from Raintree

The Vandalay Cherry tree arrived well packaged and in good condition. Planted it right away and it seems happy in its spot. Very happy with this purchase.

Scent is out of this world!

I visit my Vandalay Cherry tree several times a when in bloom and inhale deeply it’s intoxicating fragrance. I would grow it just for that. Love the freestone flavorful cherries too!

I LOVE this cherry!!

This cherry is my first to bloom in Spring, and I would grow it even just for the flowers with their intense heady aroma! Several times a day I have to inhale deeply their intoxicating scent when in bloom. The flowers are a teaser of the fruit to come. So good. I Love my Vandalay!


I can't tell. No evidence of leafing out yet. I bought one last year that was delivered in April and it never did leaf out. It obviously died. I hope I have better luck this time.
