Sweet Cherry Compatibility and Bloom Timing Chart

Many sweet cherry cultivars are unable to set fruit without a compatible pollinizer that blooms at the same time and is from a different compatibility group. This chart will help you select the right pollinizer for your chosen cultivar. For self-sterilized culitivars to set fruit, pollinizers must have at least one allele that is different than the main cultivar and these two cultivars must bloom simultaneously.
