Cherry Tree - Morello

Origin: Unknown
Cherry Type: Culinary
Rootstock: Avium
Size : Maiden
Harvest : August

Prunus cerasus 'Morello' was introduced to Britain by the Romans, but has only really been popular since the 18th century. Flowers later than sweet cherries, so a more reliable cropper as it will miss the frosts. Will also do well on east or north facing walls. As a sour cherry it is mostly used for cooking, and is self fertile. Fifty years ago there were over 50 varietals of Morello cherries being cultivated. Like all cherry trees, its attractive spring blossom is helpful for a range of pollinators including bees.

Supplier : R.V. Roger Ltd.
We donate half of our profits on sales of Morello cherry trees to Common Ground

Please note that we also sell several varieties of edible wild cherry, or "mazzard", and recommend our fruit tree planting kits for all new fruit trees.

All our cherry trees are bare root. At the height of the lifting season - between November and March - there may be up to a month's delay between placing the order and dispatching due to pressure of orders, which are dealt with in date sequence, and the weather. Orders for Morello cherry trees from March to September are confirmed in late October/ early November ready for dispatch from November. Please consult our planting and care guide on receipt of your order.
