I have Yellow Glass in two locations, in one location there were two 
other sweet cherries that bloomed this year that I assume pollinated 
the Yellow Glass- Lapins and Kristen. In the other location the only 
other pollinizer for miles was Kristen. The New York Fruit testing 
station put out a catalog which listed different incompatability 
groups and I had extrapolated from that chart the information I 
needed for the pollination requirements for Yellow Glass even though 
it wasn't on the chart. So although this information doesn't seem to 
be of much help directly, perhaps you could use this to do your own 
extrapolating if you can get ahold of a chart somewhere. New York 
Fruit Testing station had the best one that I've been able to find 
but I can't seem to find it right now.
Good luck

By the way, the Yellow Glass was eaten about two weeks later than the 
red Kirsten, the birds definately do eat the reds first.

Can you help? After reading an article in an old 'Pomona' concerning
