Cherry Morello

Cherry Morello

A very old variety, grown in England from the early 17th century, acid Cherry Morello is the classic cooking cherry. The fruit is medium-sized, almost black with dark red flesh; wonderful rich cherry flavour when cooked. Fruit contains the anti-oxidant and sleep-regulator melatonin. Compact, spreading tree, very hardy and reliable, regular cropper. Tolerates shade, and can be grown against a north wall. Prune as little as possible, and only in summer. Self-fertile and an excellent pollinator, with a long flowering season.
