Bing Cherries

Bing Cherries

Bing cherries are probably the most popular of the sweet cherries. The tree is covered in dazzling white flowers in early spring, and bright green leaves later in the season to contrast with the dark fruit. Its large, abundant cherries have set the standard for flavor for over 10 years. Eat the cherries right off the tree or use in baking and preserves.

Characteristics:

  • Grows in zones 5 to 9
  • Reaches a height of about 18 feet
  • Ready for harvest in mid- to late June (later in cooler climates)
  • Requires another cherry tree for pollination
