Answer: Lapins cherry is a sweet cherry tree that grows best in zones 5-8. Wholesale growers still rate this cherry as needing many hours of winter chill, yet it is the one most often mentioned for low-chill climates, especially in southern California. ?Lapins? produces large, firm, dark-red fruit without a cross-pollinator and fairly consistently, according to those who grow it. ?Lapins? is self-fruitful and useful as a pollinator for other cherries. Early to midseason. It requires 800 hours of chill so you will probably get more cherries in some years than in others, depending upon the weather. Enjoy your cherries!
