English Morello Tart Cherry

Prunus cerasus 'English Morello'
  • Summary
  • Hardiness Zone & More

English Morello is an antique tart cherry variety known for its cold hardiness and heavy cropping. Its medium size cherries have dark red flesh and juice. It is very productive and ripens about 10 days after Montmorency.

In England, where English Morello, is often grown along walls, gardeners often allow it to be well shaded, which can have the effect of delaying its ripening until fall. An interesting idea!
