The most popular Sweet Cherry, the Bing Cherry (Prunus avium ‘Bing’) is positively one of the finest and most famous of the Sweet Cherry varieties. A cross between the Black Republican and an unknown parent, the variety was discovered in the orchards of Seth Lewelling of Milwaukie Oregon, and has been adored by many ever since!
In early spring, Bing Cherry will be positively glowing when it is covered in dazzling white flowers. Watch as the bees and butterflies arrive to savor these lovely blooms! Later in the spring and during the summer, the Bing Cherry will have bright green leaves, a wonderful contrast to the deep garnet, almost-black fruit to follow in mid-June.
Bing produces is a very large, dark, delicious, cherry with smooth, glossy skin and has set the standard for flavor for over 100 years. The fruit is firm, extremely juicy and has what has become the classic, rich, sweet cherry flavor. Harvest when ripe, as they will not ripen further once picked.
Bing’s commercial success is also based on its heavy production. Dependable year after year come mid-season, Bing’s crop of large Sweet Cherries is always abundant! Hardy throughout USDA growing zones 5 to 9, these trees can be trained at any height needed to best suit your landscape. However, unpruned Bing Cherry trees can reach 16-20 feet in height and spread 12-15 feet wide.
Planting and Application:Bing is a perfect cherry for use in baking and preserves. However, your family and friends will not be able to resist eating these mouth-watering juicy cherries right off the tree. High in antioxidants, the Bing Cherry is a refreshing, healthy snack on a hot summer day.
The fantastic spring floral show makes this moderate-sized tree the perfect front yard specimen or garden anchor. The summer shade over your patio and seating areas, or shading your garden beds is lush and filtered by the handsome foliage.

#ProPlantTips for Care:Cherry Tree care is easy! Requiring full sun, these fruit trees produce the largest yields and best crops in 6 hours of sunlight a day or more. Plant in well-drained soils that are fertile and enriched. Cherry trees grow in a wide range of soil types as long as they don’t become soggy. A generous layer of mulch helps retain soil moisture as well as insulate the root system from heat and chill.
Fruiting trees require average moisture throughout the growing season and while many are drought-tolerant, it’s best to protect your investment with consistent watering. Supply a 3-4 inch layer of arborist mulch chips over the entire root system for improved insulation and moisture regulation. Prune fruiting Cherry trees in late winter to open the canopy to sunlight and airflow, to remove dead, damaged or diseased limbs. Prune Cherry trees in spring to shape, and remove water growth or suckers.
