Planting & Care
Intrigued? So, I guess you’d like to know how to grow a black cherry tree. First off, growing black cherries are hardy to USDA zones 2-8. Otherwise, the black cherry tree’s requirements are relatively simple.
The tree prefers some sun exposure but is most often found in the wild as an understory tree, living beneath the canopy of forest and hence often in shadow. Black cherry trees will tolerate a variety of soil media.
Before transplanting black cherry trees, however, keep in mind that the tree is quite messy. The dropping fruit tends to stain concrete and the remaining seeds can be treacherous for anyone walking beneath the tree.
Sunlight: Full sun to part shade
Soil: well-drained soils
Temprature: 1° to 6° C (34° to 43° F)
Fertilizer: apply any organic fertilizer
- There is no difference in care between sour and sweet cherries.
Apply mulch to retain moisture.
Drape netting over trees to protect the fruit from birds.
Water routinely in dry areas.
Thinning the fruit is not necessary for cherry trees.
Prune trees every year in late winter to encourage the growth of new fruiting wood.
- Don’t prune in the fall.
Fertilize each spring until trees start to bear, then fertilize only after harvest each season.
The tree grows best in a slightly acid to neutral pH soil. Avoid wet sites.
- it is used for colds, whooping cough, bronchitis and other lung problems; diarrhea; gout; digestive disorders; pain; and cancer.
- It is also used in cough syrups because of its sedative, expectorant, drying, and cough-suppressing effects.
