Description of Van Trees & Cherries:

Van cherries are ruby red, turning black when ripe and excellent quality.
Although it is not self fertile, it is a very good pollinator of other trees and often planted in larger cherry orchards.

A hardy, heavy cropping tree, recommended for Scotland and the North.

Browse our range of cherry trees or see the full variety of fruit trees.

Characteristics of Van Trees:

  • Self Sterile.
  • Pollination Group C.
  • Crops in July.

Pollination Partners for Van Cherries:
Your trees must be pollinated to make fruit.
Knight's Early Black, Merton Glory, Amber Heart, Merton Bigarreau, Lapins Cherokee and Sweetheart are all good pollination partners that fruit at slightly different times.

Van is in pollination group C, and is an excellent pollinator for any cherry tree in group B,C or D of the cherry tree pollinating table.

Rootstocks:
Our Van cherry trees are all grown on "Colt" rootstocks.
Maximum height 4 metres.

Growing Van Cherry Trees:
Rich soil is important - dig in plenty of good manure and compost before planting.
Soil drainage must be good.
The more sun your trees get the better your crops will be.
Cherry trees are targets for birds, so netting them is a good idea.
Only prune cherries in summer.
