Prunus Morello - Late Season

Description of Morello Trees & Cherries:

Morello is the best sour cooking cherry for the UK. If you want cherries for pies, jams or making alcohol, Morello is the one for you.
Smaller than their sweet cousins, these cherries are ripe for cooking when they are dark red.
If you leave them on the branch until they are almost black, you can try eating them fresh - they are very acidic and not to everyone's taste!

These trees flower very late & tend to avoid late spring frosts.
They are recommended for Scotland and the North, as long as they get a half-decent dose of sun. They will also fruit well on shadier north facing walls in the South.

Browse our range of cherry trees or see the full variety of fruit trees.

Characteristics:

  • Self fertile.
  • Pollination Group F.
  • Resistant to canker.
  • Avoid late spring frosts.
  • Later fruit are less sour & can be eaten fresh.
  • Freeze well.
  • Crop in August.

Pollination Partners:
Morello will make fruit all by itself and it makes a good pollinator for Kordia.

Rootstocks:
Our Morello cherry trees are all grown on "Colt" rootstocks.
Maximum height 4 metres.

Growing Morello Cherry Trees:
Rich soil is important - dig in plenty of good manure and compost before planting.
Soil drainage must be good.
The more sun your trees get the better your crops will be.
Cherry trees are targets for birds, so netting them is a good idea.
Only prune cherries in summer.

Pruning Sour Cherry trees:
Sour cherries fruit best on one year old wood, so yearly pruning to encourage new growth will give you the best crops.
For this reason, Morello is excellent for growing as a fan against a wall.

Details about delivery sizes: Guide to Fruit Tree Sizing.

History & Parentage:
An old Kentish breed.
Before WW2, there were many sour cherry varieties in orchards, but today this is the only commercial variety, thanks to its disease resistance and good performance in poorer soil.
