The Q&A Archives: Prunus avium Care?

Question: I have purchased a cherry tree from the Roseville Home Depot. I would like some info on care and expected harvest.

Answer: Prunus avium is a wild sweet cherry tree and is also known as Gean or Mazzard. It is self-fertile and will produce its first fruits when it is between 3-5 years of age. Plant yours in a sunny site. It will flower in April or May and the foliage turns a reddish bronze in the fall. Enjoy!
