Pollinator required to bear fruit

The gold standard for sweet cherries.

So famous for its reliable production of big, fat, glossy dark fruit, not to mention the show the blossoms put on in the spring. Sensational eaten out of hand, or use these sweet, juicy beauties in salads, desserts or in a sauce to complement savory meats like pork or duck. Originated in Salem, Oregon around 1875. Ripens in July. Pollinator required: Choose any other sweet cherry variety.

Note: Bing will not cross-pollinate with either Lambert, Emperor Francis or Napoleon/Royal Ann.

    the cherry trees were delivered as expected. They have been planted and are thriving, thank you

  2. Errol Sumrall

    Not to impressed. It is on the small side and going to take a long time to see any cherries. It did survive the winter so can be glad for that. I’m 80 yrs old so impatient to see fruit.

  3. Robert B Schrubb

    I have purchased 6 trees in the last year and all are doing great except this Bing Cherry. At this point it doesn’t look like it is going to make it. Well see come spring.

    Purchased a bing at the nursery here in prince George about 1 years ago. Has survived our harsh winters so far, blooms and produces every year. Just love. Wish we had more trees!
