Cherry Tree

Asked May 21, 2020, 4:37 PM EDT

Hello, What variety(s) of sweet cherry tree would be a good companion for a BING cherry tree in Northern Michigan? Both, of course, would have to bloom at about the same time

Cheboygan County Michigan

I have provided a link for the sweet cherry bloom order for NW Michigan. This work was done by one of our (now retired) colleagues at MSU. If you also search "sweet cherries MSU" you will find many other resources listing varieties pros and cons for Northern Michigan. https://www.canr.msu.edu/uploads/files/Research_Center/NW_Mich_Hort/Training_Pruning_Varities/SwtChryPollinationChart_2013.pdf
