Why plant Bing Sweet Cherry?
Bing gives you a big bang for your buck. Instead of shelling out loads of money for supermarket cherries, why not grow your own? Commercial growers love Bing for its juicy, sweet fruits and hefty harvests, and you will, too. It's the number one Cherry for good reason! Experience wholesome, homegrown snacking every summer. Bing Cherries taste like candy, but they're low in calories and high in fiber, vitamin C, and potassium. They're also an excellent source of antioxidants, which are natural plant chemicals that may help in the fight against aging, heart disease, Parkinson's disease, and cancer. A true superfood - like kale, but way better on ice cream!
In the 1850s, many Chinese people fled famine and war and went to the western U.S. for a better life. They worked in mines, built railroads, serves as housekeepers, and labored on farms. Ah Bing was one of these workers; he became a foreman at Seth Lewelling's orchard just south of Portland, Oregon. Bing discovered the famous Cherry there in 1875. In 1889, he went back to China to visit his family and was never seen again. It is likely that white settlers' hatred for and violence against Chinese people - and the resulting Chinese Exclusion Act - kept Bing from returning to America.
How to use Bing Sweet Cherry in the landscape?
Homeowners in the western states will have the best luck with Bing Cherry. The fruits are susceptible to splitting if it rains shortly before harvest. Reliably dry summers in Washington, Oregon, and California offer ideal conditions for this luscious fruit to reach its potential.

How To Plant Bing Sweet Cherry
Cherries are fast-growing trees, but keeping them in prime condition can be a bit of a challenge, as they are subject to a fair number of pests and diseases that find Cherries as appealing as we do. Smart cultural practices will go a long way towards keeping your Bing Sweet Cherry Tree healthy and productive. Plant it in an open, sunny site in soil that's fertile and well drained. Provide regular irrigation during establishment and in periods of drought and mulch around the tree annually with shredded bark or wood chips to maintain even moisture and to moderate temperatures in the root zone. Be on the lookout for any potential problems and remove and destroy diseased fruits, leaves, or branches. You will need another variety of Sweet Cherry Tree in the vicinity to pollinate Bing's flowers.
How Does Shipping Work?
Bower & Branch Trees, the real BIG trees, don’t fit in a box! Our large trees require expert delivery and care, that means our large trees are shipped on Bower & Branch trucks. We are the only ones who know how to ship our big and bigger trees and plants with tender loving care.
We deliver your trees and plants directly to your driveway or curbside! Ask Bower & Branch about planting services and rates – we'd be happy to assist in installation.
*Big trees, Size XL (A) and bigger, will take approximately 2 to 4 weeks days to be delivered. - Sizes large (AA) and smaller (Treelings) will be shipped directly to your home by a local common carrier in a plant-safe box.
How Does Sizing Work?
The size of our trees have nothing to do with the container size like you may find elsewhere–big doesn't mean just height - it’s also vigor, age, and overall health.. Other online retailers are going to tell you that a plant is a seven gallon, that means nothing to your tree or plant (or you.)
Our trees for sale online are graded on large, x-large, and even bigger sizes. This is because our trees are sized by their age—the higher the letter, the more mature the tree. The age determines the trees’ overall height, size of the trunk and the overall branch density.
All of these characteristics are what you should be looking for when choosing a tree for immediate impact and instant curb appeal. Our extra-large tree and plant sizes are sure to wow you and your neighbors!
