Prunus avium 'Summit' is a popular cultivar of sweet cherry tree, known for its abundant and large fruit production. It is a deciduous tree that typically grows to a height of 15-20 feet and a spread of 12-15 feet.

The 'Summit' cherry tree produces large, heart-shaped fruit that is firm, sweet, and juicy, with a deep red skin and yellow flesh. The fruit is excellent for eating fresh, but can also be used for cooking and baking.

This tree is prized for its ornamental value as well, with showy clusters of white flowers that bloom in early spring and attract pollinators. The leaves are dark green and glossy, turning to shades of yellow and orange in the fall, adding a burst of color to the landscape.

Prunus avium 'Summit' prefers full sun and well-draining soil, and it is hardy in USDA Zones 5-8. It is a self-fertile tree, meaning it does not require another cherry tree for pollination. 'Summit' is also relatively disease-resistant, making it a low-maintenance option for home gardeners and orchardists alike.

Overall, Prunus avium 'Summit' is an excellent choice for those looking for a productive and attractive cherry tree that can thrive in a variety of growing conditions.

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.

What you will not find is hot tubs, garden furniture and plastic garden gnomes. In a nutshell, trees is what we know and trees is what we do, and only trees (and some shrubs to go with the trees).
