A variety of cheerful trees can be grown in all USDA zones 6 and 7, which makes Oklahoma a great place to plant them.
Growing cherry trees in Oklahoma can present a number of challenges due to its heavy soil conditions found in the southern central region of Oklahoma, as well as its hot and dry weather. The variety of cherries grown across North America is extensive, and they are popular among many people.
In case you need advice on how to choose sour cherries that will grow well in your area, you may want to consult your local nursery or garden center (see references). You should decide whether you want to bake with the cherries or eat them straight from the skins of the cherries. If you have no intention of planting more than one sweet cherry tree, I would suggest choosing a self-pollinating cultivar like Stella or Lapins if you do not plan on planting more than one. Cherry trees with a sour taste are usually self-fertile, while trees with a sweet taste are cross-fertile.
Depending on the part of Oklahoma you live in, your supplier should be able to provide you with a high-quality cherry tree that is suitable for zones 6 or 7, according to the USDA hardiness scale. Plant a one-year old or two-year-old cherry tree either in spring or fall, depending on what part of Oklahoma you live in.
A good place to plant a flower should get an adequate amount of sunlight, preferably in an open area. You need to select a site with good drainage in the event that you are fortunate enough to have one. The clays in Oklahoma range in density from medium to heavy in density. There are many parts of Oklahoma that are covered in clays that are either medium or heavy in density.
It is advisable, despite the many suggestions to the contrary, not to add organic building materials or sand to clay soils as amendments. There is a good chance that the roots will settle into the soil of the planting hole when planted in rich soil rather than naturally spreading out to form a strong foundation for the tree. If the roots are planted in the soil of the planting hole, they are very likely to settle into the soil instead.
You can grow your own sweet cherries to have a plentiful supply available to you. Corum (Prunus avium ‘Corum’), a fruit tree that has a reddish-pink blush and an incredible taste, is also a productive tree that can be grown in your garden.
A bounty of sweet cherries will extend throughout the year between the Corum and the Royal Ann. The Corum ripens weeks before the Royal Ann. Flowering times overlap between these two popular varieties, so plant them next to each other for the most efficient pollination.
There is no doubt that you will want to eat all the fresh cherries that are available in this region. They are light and flavorful, yet firm enough to be frozen, brined, and canned.

In 1950, the University of Minnesota introduced the dwarf North Star Cherry Tree, which was a well-known cherry tree for its abundance and fast production of delicious cherries, as well as its adaptability to cold climates. There is a theory that the North Star cherry tree is particularly versatile because its plump, tart cherry fruits can be eaten directly from the tree as well as baked into recipes.
Due to its dwarf nature, it is also the perfect size for a large or small area. Being able to grow in a wide variety of landscapes is one of the major advantages of this self-fertile tree. It is important to remember that there are a lot of benefits associated with planting more cherry trees, despite the fact that there is no need to plant more cherry trees in order to produce more fruit.
