Simone

Simone is one of the new varieties of cherries that have come out of breeding programs in south-west Canada. The fruit is large - almost like a small plum, black, succulent and tasty. Quite resistant (more or less) to splitting when ripe. Self pollinating although having another variety will increase yield. Ripen from mid December to late January.

Pollination Guide

  • Pollination is far simpler than most people think. Generally, unless self fertile simply get 2 or more different varieties in the same group (eg pears) to ensure adequate pollination. A more comprehensive explanation can be found in our Pollination Guide
