Prunus avium 'Bing'
Homeowner Growing and Maintenance Tips

Bing will do best in areas that do not have frequent rains during harvest season, as it is prone to cracking. Protect from birds when ripening. The tree is healthy and sturdy. Bing is a mid-season bloomer and will pollinate with most varieties except Royal Anne, Napoleon, or Emperor Francis.
