‘Summer Sun’ Cherry Tree


An English cherry with a beautiful white blossom in Spring and bearing dark red fruits in the Summer.


‘Summer Sun’ Cherry TreeĀ produces large, maroon, sweet tasting fruits.

This cherry tree is ideal for any sized garden and it’s compact growth makes it easy to look after. Enjoy Summer Sun at its finest when picked straight from the tree.

The delicate, pure white blossom in Spring is a wonderful spectacle in itself and an added bonus.

Summer Sun is available on different rootstocks to suit a variety of gardens. The rootstock controls the rate of growth so you can choose a rootstock suitable to the area you wish to plant in. The rootstock also ensures the tree fruits earlier than when grown on its own roots.
