Q.Dwarf Bing Cherry Tree

Anonymous added on June 7, 2011 | Answered

I bought a dwarf bing cherry tree but no longer have the tag on the tree. How do I know if I need another tree for pollination? I did read the tag but don’t recall seeing that I needed another tree to produce fruit. Is there any way for me to tell now?

The Bing cherry does not necessarily have to have another tree for pollination, but it will produce more fruit on the tree year after year if there is another fruiting cherry nearby. The bees should be able to pollinate the Bing flower to flower without a second cherry tree nearby. However, you may want to consider planting another one anyway (Rainier or Stellaare good choices).
