This is an extremely prolific deciduous cherry with a compact, spreading growth habit. The sizeable, dark red fruits are ready for harvesting in August and are perfect for incorporating into a wide range of culinary recipes. 'Morello' is an acid-cherry, or sour cherry and is grown primarily for using in the kitchen in pies, crumbles and jams. It is also very attractive when in blossom.
Tolerant of north-facing situations and heavy soils. 'Morello' is a self-fertile cherry and is considered to be a good, reliable cropper. The fruits are smaller than dessert cherries, looking like seedless grapes.
Root Stock: Colt/GM9
Note: 2 year+ stock with established heads not 1 year maidens.
Buying Fruit Trees/Bushes from Jacksons Nurseries
Unlike many garden centres, supermarkets and some nurseries here at Jacksons Nurseries we sell the majority of our stock all year round. Our stock is for the most part grown outdoors making it far hardier than those grown under glass and/or only sold ‘In Season’.
Here at Jacksons Nurseries we would favour a hardy outdoor grown plant every time. They are far less likely to suffer from the shock of being planted in colder conditions and they will begin to establish more rapidly the following spring. This can mean that they don’t look like a ‘picture perfect’ plant when purchased out of season but with the correct care and a little time you’ll have a wonderful plant to enjoy for many years to come.
