Black Oliver is fairly easy to grow, but like most English cherries it is not self-fertile and will need another compatible pollinator. The best partners are the Canadian self-fertile varieties such as Stella, Sunburst, Lapins, and Sweetheart. The traditional Morello culinary cherry is also compatible.
Black Oliver is reasonably disease-resistant and generally doesn't suffer from rain-induced fruit splitting. The tree is a fairly vigorous grower.
