Lapins, Rainier and Black Tartarian are available on a Zaiger dwarf rootstock and can be maintained at 8 to 10 ft. Compact Stella, Evans Bali, and North Star are naturally dwarfing trees. Vandalay, Sam and Van are on Gisela 5 dwarfing rootstock and semi-dwarfing Colt rootstock. All other Cherry Trees are budded on semi dwarfing Colt rootstock, giving a tree 20-25 ft. if left unpruned. With summer pruning it can be kept at any height. This rootstock induces early fruiting and productivity. It is resistant to bacterial canker and will tolerate clay soils.
Genetic dwarfing form of the self-fertile Stella variety. Only growing to about 8-10ft. Dark, heart shaped fruit of good quality, similar to Lambert. Not as crack resistant as Lapins. Compact Stella Cherry is low chill, so it can fruit in the South.
Yellow skin with a hint of blush, that is less attractive to birds. The large firm fruit with white juicy flesh is crack resistant. Rainier Cherry trees are particularly hardy, yet fairly low chill. Pollinated by all except Kristin. Zone 5-9.
