Celeste cherry trees

Prunus avium

Celeste is a large dark red/black cherry with a small stone and good volume of juicy flesh. The flavour is excellent, very sweet, quite mild, and with a pleasant cherry aftertaste. Probably one of the best early-season cherries.

Unusually amongst cherries, Celeste is naturally compact, making it ideal for small gardens and growing in patio containers. We find that even on the semi-vigorous Colt rootstock it will still remain a fairly small tree, typically reaching 2m-3m.
