I have a Montmorency Cherry tree and now have purchased a Dwarf Bing Cherry - do I need to cross pollinate it with another sweet cherry or am I safe with the Montmorency Cherry tree?

Montmorency is a sour cherry that self-pollinates. Bing is a sweet cherry that requires cross pollination. Sweet and sour cherries do not cross pollinate, so it will need another sweet cherry.
