How to Grow Stella Cherry Trees

species Malus domestica - Apple Tree

Share With Friends:

Cherries are the first stone fruit tree to flower and fruit, welcoming the arrival of summer. The Stella cherry tree is self-pollinating, meaning it does not need other trees to bear fruit for it to flower. This compact tree grows 12 to 16 feet tall, making it ideal for smaller garden areas. In April, bright pink blooms burst open, giving way to dark red fruit in July. Cherry trees produce bigger crops in areas that have frosty conditions.

1. Choose a location that receives full sun all day. The Stella cherry tree does not do well if near a building or shade trees.

2. Till the garden area after the last frost, usually in early to late spring. Since cherry trees need well-drained soil it is important to check the drainage. Do this by digging a hole about 24 inches deep and pouring a bucket of water into it. If the water sits in the hole, you will need to enrich the soil with rotted animal manure and a quality potting soil with a pH of 6.2 to 6.8.

3. Dig a hole twice as big as the tree's root ball. Set the tree in the hole with the top of the root ball level with the ground surface. Fill in around the roots with soil and tamp down with your foot. Stake your new tree to avoid damage from winds.

4. Water your tree well after planting, soaking the soil with a slow trickle for one to two hours. It is better to water deeply with a soaker hose than to water quickly and more shallow. Keep your cherry tree watered well especially in hotter temperatures. The soil should be dry down to about 3 inches before watering. Do not overwater to avoid root rot.

5. Apply a slow-release fertilizer after planting and in early spring every year. Use a fertilizer designed for fruit trees with a high nitrogen level (the first number on the container). Spread the fertilizer around the outer diameter of the tree, being careful not to touch the trunk.

6. Apply a layer of organic mulch under the tree. This keeps weeds under control and helps the soil stay cool while retaining moisture.

7. Prune your cherry tree in late summer after it is finished producing fruit. Cut off dead or damaged limbs and create a vase shape by cutting out limbs in the middle. This allows for better air circulation in the center of the tree. After cutting the limbs apply a pruning paste to avoid disease and pests from entering the cut site. Pruning paste is available at local gardening stores.

Apple Tree
About:The apple is the pomaceous fruit of the apple tree, species Malus domestica in the rose family (Rosaceae). It is one of the most widely cultivated tree fruits, and the most widely known of the many members of genus Malus that are used by humans. Apples grow on small, deciduous trees that blossom in the spring and produce fruit in the fall. The tree originated in Western Asia, where its wild ancestor, Malus sieversii, is still found today. Apples have been grown for thousands of years in Asia and Europe, and were brought to North America by European colonists. Apples have been present in the mythology and religions of many cultures, including Norse, Greek and Christian traditions. In 2010, the fruit's genome was decoded, leading to new understandings of disease control and selective breeding in apple production.
Work:The proverb "An apple a day keeps the doctor away.", addressing the health effects of the fruit, dates from 19th century Wales. Research suggests that apples may reduce the risk of colon cancer, prostate cancer and lung cancer. Compared to many other fruits and vegetables, apples contain relatively low amounts of vitamin C, but are a rich source of other antioxidant compounds. The fiber content, while less than in most other fruits, helps regulate bowel movements and may thus reduce the risk of colon cancer. They may also help with heart disease, weight loss, and controlling cholesterol. The fiber contained in apples reduces cholesterol by preventing reabsorption, and (like most fruits and vegetables) they are bulky for their caloric content.[54][57] However, apple seeds are mildly poisonous, containing a small amount of amygdalin, a cyanogenic glycoside. It usually is not enough to be dangerous to humans, but can deter birds. There is evidence from laboratory experiments that apples possess phenolic compounds which may be cancer-protective and demonstrate antioxidant activity. The predominant phenolic phytochemicals in apples are quercetin, epicatechin, and procyanidin B2. Apple juice concentrate has been found to increase the production of the neurotransmitter acetylcholine in mice, providing a potential mechanism for the "prevention of the decline in cognitive performance that accompanies dietary and genetic deficiencies and aging." Other studies have shown an "alleviation of oxidative damage and cognitive decline" in mice after the administration of apple juice. Researchers at the Chinese University of Hong Kong discovered that fruit flies who were fed an apple extract lived 10% longer than other flies who were fed a normal diet.
More Info:There are more than 7,500 known cultivars of apples, resulting in a range of desired characteristics. Different cultivars are bred for various tastes and uses, including in cooking, fresh eating and cider production. Domestic apples are generally propagated by grafting, although wild apples grow readily from seed. Trees are prone to a number of fungal, bacterial and pest problems, which can be controlled by a number of organic and non-organic means.

At least 55 million tonnes of apples were grown worldwide in 2005, with a value of about $10 billion. China produced about 35% of this total. The United States is the second-leading producer, with more than 7.5% of world production. Iran is third, followed by Turkey, Russia, Italy and India. Apples are often eaten raw, but can also be found in many foods (especially desserts) and drinks. Many beneficial health effects have been found from eating apples; however, the seeds are slightly poisonous and two forms of allergies are seen to various proteins found in the fruit.
