Patio Cherry Tree (Marshalls Seeds)

Patio Cherry Tree

  • Delicious dessert cherries
  • Perfect as patio trees
  • Comfortable picking height

Grow sweet cherry Van in your kitchen garden. Our trees grow perfectly in pots on sunny patios reaching a manageable 1.2m (4ft). It’s a reliable sweet red dessert cherry for UK growers and a bowl of Van cherries makes a great addition to the summer dining table. The flesh is firm and the flesh, succulent.

Fruit is preceded by a wealth of flowers, bringing in important pollinating insects early in the year which stick around to pollinate pea, beans and other fruiting vegetables.

We recommend you prune lightly in August to create a good canopy shape. Remove any wayward branches fully that spoil the overall shape of the tree. Prune around a quarter of the fruit stems to a leafy-shoot further down the stem.
