Q.Why Does My Cherry Tree Not Produce Cherries

Anonymous added on August 6, 2012 | Answered

I have a cherry tree, about 8 yrs old. Beautiful tree, but no fruit. What shall I do to make it bear fruit? I have gotten 9 or 10 cherries, but none this year.

Do you see pollinators around the cherry blossoms? Cherries bloom rather early and it may be possible that poor weather is keeping pollinators from your garden that early. Take a look at attracting more pollinators as you will need all you can get that early.

Also, I would look to a phosphorus deficiency. This can cause problems with plants that produce fruit. Give it a high phosphorus fertilizer or add bone meal to the soil.
