Description

New Product!

Similar to Bing, but better. Prepare for a springtime show when this tree blooms: the flowers are quite beautiful, and they’re frost-resistant, to boot. The fruits from this Schmidt x Lambert cross are large and taste quite like Bing cherries, but are more crack-resistant and a bit darker red in color. If you enjoy juicing or making sweet wine in addition to fresh eating, this is a good choice. The tree is productive and offers good pest, disease and drought resistance. Best pollinators: Rainier, Rynbrandt or Royalton®.

Will this pollinate with the Sam Sweet and vice versa?
Andrew on Apr 11, 2021
BEST ANSWER: Thank you for your question. Common rule of cherry tree pollination is any sweet cherry will pollinate another sweet cherry.
Except when it comes to the Bing, there are three varieties that will not cross-pollinate with it and it is the Emperor Francis, Lambert, or Napoleon/Royal Ann. Other than those you will be fine to choose any other sweet variety for pollination.
What will it cross pollinate with? I live in zone6B

BEST ANSWER: Thank you for your question. Common rule of cherry tree pollination is any sweet cherry will pollinate another sweet cherry. So the options are endless, it just needs to be one of a separate variety.
