Bare Root Lapins Cherokee Cherry Tree
The Bare Root Lapins Cherokee cherry tree is a reliable garden favourite. The large cherry fruits are big, dark and sweet. If you only have room for one tree, this would be a great choice.
The Lapins Cherokee cherry tree will drop some of the cherries while they are green, this is normal in the World of cherry trees and it probably has a nick name of butter fingers to its tree friends.
