Description of Celeste Trees & Cherries:
If you want to grow a cherry tree in a big tub on your patio or if you only have room in the garden for one small cherry tree, Celeste is the one for you. It is naturally stunted and grows quite slowly, so it will probably never need any pruning. Best of all, it is reliably self fertile, so you only need one. It is an early cropper, giving you a decent yield of sinfully sweet, dark cherries in early July.
