Cherry

Cherry trees are an excellent addition to any piece of property. Cold Stream Farm keeps three types of cherry trees in stock and can provide you with whichever one would work best for your land. You can choose from Choke Cherry (Prunus virginiana) trees, Wild Black Cherry (Prunus serotina) trees, and Sand Cherry (Prunus beseyii) trees when shopping around for cherry trees for sale.

Choke Cherry (Prunus virginiana) trees typically grow to be about 20 feet tall, and while they grow best in rich soil that’s well drained, they can tolerate almost any type of soil, including sand. They thrive when they’re exposed to sunshine early and often, but they can also tolerate the shade. These cherry trees are known for producing beautiful flowers and fruits as they mature. Their flowers are usually white and very fragrant, while the fruit they produce is usually purplish-black in color and on the smaller side. It’s used in pies, jellies, and more.

Wild Black Cherry (Prunus serotina) trees are much larger than Choke Cherry trees and usually top out at 50 to 60 feet. They can live for up to 250 years and excel when they’re placed in either rich soil that’s very moist or sandy soil that’s light. Wild Black Cherry trees are hardy and tough, but they also produce white flowers and dark purple fruit that tastes sweet. The fruit is used to make pies, jams, ice creams, and other foods. These trees are not recommended for those with livestock on their land because the leaves from the trees have poisoned animals in the past.

Sand Cherry (Prunus beseyii) trees are the smallest of the cherry trees for sale through Cold Stream Farm. They only grow to be about 4 to 7 feet tall and need full sun to flourish. They’re cold hardy but prefer to be placed into loamy soils. Like their much taller counterparts, Sand Cherry trees produce white flowers as well as purple-black fruit that can be used to make pies, jellies, and more. They’re also often planted to supply wildlife like deer with food and to provide cover for songbirds and game birds.

Cold Stream Farm can set you up with wholesale cherry trees if you’re looking to plant any of these types of trees on your property. Call 231-464-5809 today to place an order.
