Prunus avium 'Stella'

Stella is a black, firm, juicy, heart-shaped cherry from Canada. Because Stella is self-fertile, it makes an ideal selection for a backyard grower without space for two sweet cherry trees.

The tree is productive and the fruit is of excellent quality. Stella is moderately resistant to bacterial canker, and requires only 400 hours below 45F to successfully produce fruit.

Ask a Question
  • What variety of cherry can I grow successfully in north west Florida

    Prunus avium, the sweet cherry, doesn't grow well in Florida due to the high humidity and regular heavy rains which invite disease and will destroy fruit crops.

  • Will Stella pollinate bing

    Yes they cross pollinate fine

  • Will Stella pollinate Rainier?

    Yes they are compatible.

  • Can you ship to Washington state

    Yes these can be shipped to WA state.

  • Can I plant dwarf rootstock in a big pot?

    For a time yes, but not for it's whole life if you plan to harvest cherries for many years. A mini-dwarf can survive in a large container much longer.

  • What color are the blooms?


  • Are your Stella cherry trees, mature and fruiting trees?

    Our trees are 3 years old when shipped, near to blooming and fruiting age, especially on the Gisela series of rootstocks.

Beautiful specimen

The tree I received is strong and healthy and doing great with many vibrant buds and unfolding leaves. The tree arrived in great condition, with a solid stem and many healthy roots. I wish I had known about the quality of your stock before as I've been disappointed by plants I've received from other companies.

Cherry Tree Review

The Stella cherry tree arrived packaged securely. The tree has buds coming out of a majority of the trunk!

Little Stella arrived in great condition; very well packaged. I planted it the day after arrival. This tree is much younger than the Tristar Peach Plum that I'd purchased from you, as it has buds but no branches. I've been checking on it daily and haven't noticed any significant change in the buds, even with the warmer weather and sun, so I'm hoping that it will perk up in the coming weeks.
