Im planting Ranier Cherry pits this fall, about a couple hundred of them, I have read about possible pollinators, but I wanted to know if Sour Cherries, Chokecherry and ornamental (non fruiting)cherries will pollenate? Also will other stone fruits like plums and apricots pollenate cherries? Many thanks.
North Star and Black Gold are late-season pollinators while Stella is an early-season variety. Van, Sam, Rainier, and Garden Bing are all adaptable to any of the cross pollinators available except themselves. Pollinating a cherry tree when you are unsure of the variety can be done with the Lambert or Garden Bing varieties in most cases.
