Stella Cherry / Gisela 3

This black, firm, juicy heart shaped cherry from Canada is ideal for a backyard grower without space for two sweet cherry trees. The tree is productive and the fruit is of excellent quality and moderately resistant to bacterial canker. On dwarf Gisela 3 rootstock.

Gisela 3 is the most dwarfing of the Gisela rootstocks making a tree that grows to only 8 to 10 feet tall. It tends to make a broad tree excellent for a small area. Its small size and early heavy bearing are great attributes but because of this the tree needs good growing conditions to thrive.  It is very precocious prompting the tree to bear heavily at an early age. It may require fruit thinning to maintain fruit size and avoid overbearing and having the tree stop growing. Regular irrigation is needed. It is recommended that dormant pruning on all dwarf cherry trees be done in late winter before bloom time which reduces the chance of bacterial canker infestations.
