I grow a lot of cherrys.Seems like once the blossom shows you have about two to five days before it dies and drops.You have a couple of hours in the morning for the dry pollen to escape either by buzzing wings,wind,and artificial manipulation,electric toothbrush etc.I tap my plants with a stick.If the pollen is damp due to the humidity it will not move.I live in a 10 B,Really humid condition.We do pollen checks by a black cardboard square held underneath a blossom and tapped to see if anything falls out.
