I had this variety previously and was very pleased. I lost the tree due to weather this winter and am replacing it for my granddaughter, who loves the sour cherries.

This is self-pollinating but you recommend planting "pollinating partners" for increased yield. What do you recommend as a partner for the Montmorency?
susan p on Mar 22, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Another sour cherry tree like Balaton or North Star will cross-pollinate Montmorency.
