Stella Cherry Growing and Maintenance Tips

Plant in average to evenly moist conditions, in full sun. Stella cherry is a self-pollinating cultivar; it does not require a second plant nearby to set fruit. It can be used to pollinate other sweet cherries. If another cherry tree is planted nearby, Stella will be more prolific, producing larger fruit.
