What is Santina Cherry Tree

Want to enjoy the crisp and slightly-sweet taste of summer cherries early on? The Santina™ Cherry Tree is the earliest ripening fruit tree of its kind! It’s known for blooming as early as the first week in April and producing fruit through late summer.

The Santina™ Cherry Tree not only provides you with a long harvest window, but its weeping habit and heart-shaped cherries make an attractive addition to any landscape!
