Cherry Trees
Q.

What to do with sprouted cherry pits?

Zone Darien, 31305 | Anonymous added on January 7, 2020 | Answered

In like the middle of last year I bought some cherries, ate them, and cracked opened the pit to get to the seed? I put them in a container with a wet paper towel and pretty much left them in my fridge “because they probably won’t do anything anyway, I’ll clean it later” Well it’s january now, and I decided to look at them, and four have roots no bigger than one inch. Should I put them in pots or back in the fridge until it’s warmer? If I should put them in pots, and specific size and soil?

    You can put them in pots, but keep them inside till the danger of frost has passed. Here's how to grow them:
