cherries in pots

I would like to grow a Bing cherry and Rainer Cherry tree. Can they be planted in a large container and produce fruit?

Thanks
Lynette
they like to have the roots stay cool for the most part, but if you can find the dwarf varieties and a large enough pot I do believe it is possible, part of it also depends on climate you live in. I would use a ceramic pot with good drainage and in winter definitely wrap blankets from good will around the pots and maybe a bit of insulation too. I live in western washington and cherry trees like those grow well planted in the ground. I do love the rainier cherry best, I introduced my southern in-laws to the rainier cherry and to washington peaches. they loved both and thought our cherries and peaches where way better than the ones grown down south.

Yes Growing fruit in containers can be particularly suitable when a large section of garden is devoted to vegetables or flowers. Depending on the type of fruit chosen, watering and cultivation requirements may be incompatible with other plants.

There is an dwarf apple called a pole apple it is designed for container gardening and comes in several varieties,I recently discovered a bush apricot also, there are also dwarf blue berries.
