Cherry Trees

Asked March 28, 2020, 1:16 PM EDT

Do you have a list of cherry tree varieties appropriate for our area?

I would like to do a specific search online for nurseries which sell them. Currently, I am resorting to a general search and then contacting them for chill hour information. It is a tedious process.

Thank you.

Hello, I believe I may have already answered your question in a direct email, but here is the information about growing Cherry trees in Northern Nevada.

Here are just a few suggestions:

Attika (Kordia),

Black Gold

Kristin

Gold

Bing

Stella

Black Gold

Sunburst

Utah Giant

Try to stay with varieties with more than 700 hours. This may vary depending on where you live.

I am also going to give you a link to a company that sells to our local nurseries. You can not purchase directly from them, but their website is a wonderful resource and you can ask your favorite nursery to bring in what you may want. This company almost always lists the chill hours. https://www.davewilson.com/product-information/product/cherries
