How old does a cherry tree have to be before it starts producing fruit?

    Typically, cherry trees produce fruit after 5 or 6 years of life. If you are purchasing a young cherry tree, then it should bear fruit in 3-5 years. Well worth the wait, and so beautiful!

    It isn’t a fast process. Some take up to 3-4 years just to have one or two fruits. It generally takes 2 years for a spur on a branch to bear fruit. so keeping that in mind, if you accidently prune a branch that shouldn’t be cut, you will have to expect another 2 years until that spur bears fruit again. You can expect your tree to start producing more fruit when it is about 6-7 feet tall. So be patient and reap the benefits.
