I've been thinking about your question and I'm not sure I understand it but... Sweet Cherries need a pollinator, not of their own variety. If you took a ripe Bing Cherry and grew the seed, it would be a hybrid with whatever the second tree variety was as the seed is carrying DNA from both parents. Often, at least in California, that is a Black Tartarian. Sour Cherries will pollinate a Sweet Cherry but are also self-fertile. If there is another Cherry tree nearby that blooms at the same time, they will cross pollinate though.
Was that the question?
