Cherry growers/farmers depend on bees for pollination of their cherry crop. Cherry trees bud in January and February, blossoms appear in late March and early April. This is the timing for beehives to be delivered and the bees to do their work of cross pollination for most cherry varieties. Of course, other factors, such as weather and general farming practices play a role in the ultimate success of a cherry harvest in June and July but a healthy bee population helps to guarantee you will continue to see those locally grown marvelous dark sweet cherries at your farmers markets and at your favorite grocery store.
