Cherry 'Picota' (Prunus avium 'Picota') is a delicious and popular fruit tree variety that produces sweet and juicy cherries. It is a Spanish variety that is known for its unique characteristics and is highly sought after by cherry lovers all over the world.

The tree is medium-sized, reaching heights of 10-12 feet, and has a spreading habit with a broad, rounded crown. The foliage is dark green, glossy, and ovate-shaped, providing an attractive backdrop to the stunning display of cherries.

The 'Picota' cherry has a deep red color and a rich, sweet flavor that is slightly tart. It has a firm texture and a small pit, making it easy to eat. The fruit ripens in late June and early July, making it an early season variety.

This cherry tree variety is relatively easy to grow and care for, requiring full sun exposure and well-draining soil. It is also a self-fertile variety, meaning that it does not require another tree for pollination, making it an excellent choice for smaller gardens.

Overall, Cherry 'Picota' is a must-have for any cherry enthusiast or home gardener who wants to enjoy delicious, fresh cherries straight from their own backyard.

About Us

During this time, we have developed a large stock of trees, mature evergreen shrubs, conifers, Japanese maples, cedars and olives. What sets us apart from a generic garden center is solid unwavering focus on trees and some bigger shrubs. You will find thousands of trees, hundreds of varieties and lots of experts who are working on the nursery and more than willing to help you to choose a plant for you.
