Are cherry trees self fertile?
Similarly, do I need 2 cherry trees to get fruit?
How to Grow a Cherry Tree. Any cherry tree care manual will tell you that sour cherry trees are self-pollinators. This means they do not require more than one tree to produce the fruit. However, if you plant the sweet variety, you will need at least a couple of trees for proper cherry tree pollination.
Additionally, how do cherry trees reproduce? In order for plants to make seeds to reproduce, they need pollen to come into contact with a part of the plant called the pistil, both of which are located in flowers. Cherry trees have both pollen and pistils on the same plant, but they need the help of pollinator insects like bees to help the two come together.
Also, is Bing cherry self fertile?
Your Bing cherry tree is in flowering group 3. It is not self-fertile and needs a pollination partner of a different variety nearby. The following varieties will pollinate this cherry tree.
Will 2 Bing cherry trees pollinate each other?
The Bing Cherry does require cross-pollination, so another Cherry tree is needed to produce fruit. Many cherry varieties will act as pollinators for the Bing, a few we recommend are the Lapins and Black Tartarian which are the traditional pollinators.
