Prunus avium 'Bing'
|Description||The most popular sweet cherry variety, known for producing exceptionally large, dark mahogany fruit that is firm, sweet and juicy. Excellent for eating fresh, canning or preserves. Grafted onto vigorous, disease resistant Mahaleb Cherry rootstock. Plant a pollenizer such as Stella or Rainier for best production. Recommended winter chill: 700 - 900 hours. Deciduous.|
|Watering||Water when top 2 inches of soil is dry.|
|Mature Size||Reaches 15 to 20 feet tall and wide; often pruned to maintain smaller size.|
|Care||Provide humus-rich, acidic, well-drained soil. Water deeply and regularly during the first few growing seasons to establish an extensive root system; reduce frequency once established. Fertilize before new growth begins in spring. Prune in winter while dormant for shape and structure.|
