Compact Stella sweet cherry trees bear very dark red heart-shaped fruit that is of high quality for fresh eating, and equally well-suited for canning, drying, or freezing. This variety is a genetic variant of the Stella variety with a less-vigorous growth habit, hence the name “compact”. Typical mature height is 8-10 feet (2.5-3.0m), though they can reach up to 12 feet in optimal growing conditions. Also, unlike most sweet cherries, Compact Stella is self-fertile and is also an excellent pollinator for other varieties such as Bing.
