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.

Exceeds expectations!

Online plants are usually half the size you can get in a nursery so I was pleasantly surprised by the size and health of the tree I recently received. It is robust and strong. I’m so excited to see it budding!

Healthy Morelo

The cherry tree arrived a little late, and I had to hold it in my garage for a week before planting. However, it is beautiful and healthy and larger than I had imagined. We carefully planted it according to your directions and so far it looks great and is enjoying the late winter rains.
