'Lapins' cherry tree produces dark, sweet fruit that is very similar to the popular Bing cherry. The cherries are about an inch in diameter. The flesh of the cherries is firm, more so than Bing, and the fruits resist splitting. For the home gardener with limited space, this is a self-fertile variety. Plant it in soil that drains well, and amend the soil with some compost before putting it in the ground. Pruning is only really needed once a year, in winter or early spring. This will help keep the tree's shape and size and support good fruit production.
