Pollination of Cherry Trees

We grow a good range of self fertile sweet Cherry Trees that do not need to be pollinated.  cherry tree
However, more than half of our range, including all of the earliest cropping cherries, will need a pollination partner to bear fruit.


Pollination Groups:
Cherry trees will cross pollinate with trees in the same pollination group & the Pollination groups next to it.

For Example:

  • A tree in group B will cross-pollinate with trees in groups A, B & C
