This is one of the best cherry trees for a small garden and because it grows quite slowly, it shouldn't need any pruning. It is self fertile, so you don't need to buy a second cherry tree to pollinate it and when it is mature, it is a heavy cropping tree for its size. The cherries are plump, sweet and very dark.
If you want a longer season of cherries and have room for another small tree, we recommend Celeste, which crops about a month before Petit Noir.
