Cherry Tree - Early Rivers

Prunus avium 'Early Rivers' is called "Early" as it's the earliest black cherry to ripen. Not only is it early, but the tree crops heavily and its delicious cherries have very small stones. The tree was grown from a seedling of Early Purple Gean by Thomas River; confusingly we've also heard it called the Kentish Cherry. Partially self-fertile, but prefers a pollinator. Like all cherry trees, its attractive spring blossom is helpful for a range of pollinators including bees.

We sell Early Rivers cherry trees as one to two year old maiden plants on Colt rootstock, which will typically produce a tree around 4m tall.


Supplier : R.V. Roger Ltd.

Please note that we also sell several varieties of edible wild cherry, or "mazzard", and recommend our fruit tree planting kits for all new fruit trees.

We supply all our fruit trees as bare root, so they are only available between November and April. During lifting season, there will be a delay between placing the order and dispatching due to pressure of orders, which are dealt with in date sequence, and the weather. Orders taken from June-October will be confirmed in late October/ early November after a nursery stock take, for dispatch from November. Please consult our planting and care guide on receipt of your order.

Your purchase helps us support a range of charities, which are related to the products we sell.
