‘Morello’ Cherry Tree is an excellent sour cherry producing an acidy taste.
Growing this popular acid cherry will provide a variety of culinary uses in the kitchen. Add and enjoy Morello cherries in cakes, preserves and pies.
As an alternative harvest, pick Morello a little later for a bitter-sweet taste. A late, white blossom in Spring rounds off a well known, outstanding sour cherry.
Morello is available on different rootstocks to suit a variety of gardens. The rootstock controls the rate of growth so you can choose a rootstock suitable to the area you wish to plant in. The rootstock also ensures the tree fruits earlier than when grown on its own roots.
