Prunus cerasus 'Morello'

Morello cherries have a deep crimson flesh and rich, wine-red juice. English Morello is an old variety, grown for centuries. It has tart, aromatic flesh. The juice is abundant and excellent for cooking and pie making.

The large heart-shaped, dark red fruit is freestone and ripens in August, at the end of the cherry season. The tree habit is small; easily maintained at 8 feet or less. Also low chill - between 400 and 500 hours will guarantee good bloom and fruit set.
