Summer Sun is not fully self-fertile, although it will usually set a crop on its own - however you will get better results if there is another compatible variety nearby such as Stella or Van or Lapins. Summer Sun is itself a good pollinator of other cherry varieties.
Summer Sun grows with a compact spreading habit - if you select the Gisela 5 rootstock it makes a good choice for smaller gardens.
Developed in the 1960s at the John Innes research institute, Norfolk UK.
