Minnie Royal Cherry Tree Information and Care

The Minnie Royal cherry trees are beautiful, a compact deciduous fruit tree. Spring time brings a flush of tiny white blossoms, followed by summer fruit. Planting a Minnie Royal cherry tree is a nice choice for the home orchard where soils drain well. Plant where Summers are relatively cool. Cherry trees can grow as large as 20 feet tall and wide but can be kept half that size with regular pruning.

Planting and Watering Cherry Trees

Plant as close as 10 feet apart and prune trees to be kept short for easy pruning or tall and narrow. Plant the cherry tree in well-draining soil. Water regularly during the Spring and Summer growing season. Deep water once to twice per week until trees establish. Reduce irrigation frequency once the weather cools in the Fall. Discontinue supplemental irrigation water in the winter while the tree is dormant. Begin watering once the tree leafs out in the Spring.

How to Fertilize a Cherry Tree

Fertilize Cherry trees with manure and other organic fertilizers with higher phosphorus and potassium in the late winter. Fertilizers like bone meal, humus, and flower n bloom fruit tree foods promote spring blossoms and fruit production.  Promote Springtime growth with Nitrogen fertilizers such as blood meal or feeds like 7-3-3 EB STONE ORGANICS.

Tips when Pruning Cherry Trees

Trim trees in the winter while dormant. Top the tips to reduce the height and encourage lower branches to grow. Remove any growth below the lowest main branches and the graft. Cut off dry twigs and growth crossing towards the center. Do some thinning in the Summer time to direct the plant’s energy. Remove excess fruits to help remaining fruit to develop larger.

Pest Management

Use organic horticultural dormant sprays like Neem oil in the winter.
