If you are looking to plant an exotic fruit tree in your garden, the Cherry Morello Tree is the perfect choice. It is a self fertile fruit tree, so you will not need another cherry tree to pollinate it. It makes a great choice for new gardeners trying out their skills and is also ideal for those who are more experienced and plant orchards.
Morello Cherry trees offer fruit which is a large, luscious with a dark black colour. They have a bitter-sweet, very strong flavour and are ideal for use in cooking. Use the fresh cherries to make jams, jellies, cherry cobbler, stewed fruits or a delectable cherry pie. They can also be used to make a great basting sauce for barbecued ribs or chicken. If you have too many to use after harvesting, the cherries can be frozen for use at a later stage.
Prunus avium 'Morello' has a compact and spreading habit with large reaching branches. In spring it puts on a show with masses of white flowers. The flowers are lightly scented and attract butterflies into your garden, creating movement and interest. The fruits are ready for picking in late July to early August. The tree is very hardy and can withstand tough and difficult positions. It can be used with great advantage on a North facing wall. This hardy cherry tree holds an RHS Award of Garden Merit.
