'Morello' Cherry is often referred to as 'The Cooking Cherry' because it is the variety most frequently used for making the delicious fragrant pies and jams we all know and love! The fruits are packed with juice and the skin colour is dark red. It is one of the most reliable croppers of all the sour cherries because it is self-ertile, late flowering and so less susceptible to frost damage, plus it is incredibly disease resistant a real winner for any garden! 'Morello' Cherry is also a great tree to grow on a north-facing wall because even in a cooler position with low light levels it will still grow and thrive and fruit as normal you can usually expect to pick the fruits from late August onwards.
I have bought two cherry trees:
"Sour Cooking Cherry 'Morello' Tree" - and second "Cherry Bing Patio Fruit Tree" ordered via Amazon website. Both trees look in “Good Health”, but I am quite a bit disappointed how that tree I bought via Amazone was pruned. I have contacted (e-mail) "You garden", but have no reply after a week.
I have bought Sour Cooking Cherry 'Morello' Tree - directly from the website and so far I am totally satisfied with the quality of the delivered tree. We will see if it will be OK next year...:)
