Stella Cherry / Gisela 5 [SPRING]
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 5 rootstock.
Gisela 5 is a dwarfing rootstock, 50% of standard size, that induces heavy early fruit production. Trees can be maintained at 10 to 12 feet tall. Gisela 5 is more forgiving of shallow soils and a better choice than the even more dwarfing Gisela 3 for people with enough room for this somewhat larger tree.
