How long to cherry trees take to grow to maturity?

I dug up a few seedlings from around a cherry tree and transplanted them to a pot. How many years would it be until they start producing fruit?

    Place the containers on a sunny windowsill. Keep the soil evenly moist and wait for the seeds to sprout. This can take from 3 months to 18 months, depending on the cultivar you are growing.

    I think you should read this first.

    For small cultivars you buy in a nursery it will take around 2-3 years to grow to maturity, i.e. to start producing fruits. For bigger trees it takes 5 or more years.

    Note: you won’t get the same fruits from your seedlings as the trees have where you found the seedlings. Yours are genetically a different variety than the fruit trees. Cherry tree cultivars usually are multiplied vegetatively, i.e. through grafting. Just don’t be disappointed if your trees will have different and most probably smaller fruits or maybe not producing any fruits at all.
