Just so, where do cherry trees grow best?

Sweet cherries are best suited for areas where temperatures are mild and humidity is low while tart cherries will grow in cooler climates and need about 2 months of winter temperatures below 45° F.

Also Know, can you grow a cherry tree from store bought cherries? Your best bet is to plant cherry seeds from a cherry that grew on a locally grown tree or that you bought from a local fruit stand. Sour cherries need 20 to 25 feet between trees. Sweet cherries need 25 to 30 feet between cherries. You can expect to wait seven to 10 years for your tree to bear cherries.

Besides, how long does it take to grow a cherry tree?

When grown from seed, a sweet cherry may begin producing fruit in seven to 10 years. A sour cherry may begin producing fruit in four or five years. The tree, however, will not grow true to the parent, so the fruit may resemble any or none of the parent tree's ancestors. Some trees grown from seed never produce fruit.

Do I need 2 cherry trees to get fruit?

How to Grow a Cherry Tree. Any cherry tree care manual will tell you that sour cherry trees are self-pollinators. This means they do not require more than one tree to produce the fruit. However, if you plant the sweet variety, you will need at least a couple of trees for proper cherry tree pollination.
