Pollination Of Black Tartarian

Categories: Fruit Growing

There are many old Tartarian cherry trees around our district that have

only borne a few cherries in years. There are Bing, Royal Ann and Early

Purple Guignes here with these, but they seldom, if ever, bloom with the

Tartarian at the proper time to pollinate. What varieties would cause

the trees to bear?

Sterility of the Black Tartarian is rather unusual. In the coast

regions, Bing, Black Tartarian and Early Purple Guigne are all

considered pollinizers for the Royal Ann. Inversely all these should be

pollinizers for the Black Tartarian, if that variety requires such

assistance, which we have all along supposed that it did not.
