Meteor Tart Cherry
Prunus cerasus 'Meteor'
- Hardiness Zone & More
Meteor is a natural genetic dwarf that will grow about half as much as other tart cherries. It produces a nice, tart, juicy, meaty pie cherry that resembles Montmorency. It is extremely hardy. It blooms and ripens a week after after Montmorency.
Meteor is a cross of Montmorency with a Russian variety, thus gaining its extreme hardiness. It was introduced in 1952 from University of Minnesota.
