This Lapins cherry tree is grown on dwarf Gisele 5 stock which is compact and makes the smallest Cherry tree of all. Trees can be maintained at around 150cm’s in height with a similar spread, perhaps a little less if contained in a 20-24”” pot. The trees are easy to manage and easy to harvest with no ladders required and also easier to net against the birds; also suitable for fruit cages.
Lapins is one of the most popular garden varieties because it is easy to grow, has good quality mild, sweet fruits and is self fertile so you don’t need any other varieties to produce the good crops. Lapins seems to have a somewhat naturally compact habit which can also be an advantage in the garden.
The fruits ripen mid season and are medium to dark red in colour. Lapins is self pollinating, no partner trees are required. Also a good polinating tree for other cherry varieties.
