Ornamental Self-fertile Tree with Delicious Fruit

English Morello is an ornamental tree that produces delicious fruit.  Plant several for a small orchard on a side yard, or perhaps a few along your driveway for an elegant welcome to your home all summer long.  You can even use the English Morello as a small hedge, as they adapt well to pruning.

When the pretty flowers of many cherry trees have faded in decline, you can count on your English Morello to begin its dazzling display.  In fact, you can easily prolong your summer cherry harvest as well by planting a few of these late-ripening trees. 

Mid-summer is sure to bring you a prolific harvest of delicious, tart cherries that are perfect for many uses.  Bake a pie for the neighbors or perhaps keep a bowl on the kitchen table for enjoying fresh.  

English Morello cherries are outstanding for canning or freezing, and maintain their flavor well.  They’re also perfect for liquors and brandies, creating wonderful home-grown holiday gifts.

This late blooming self-fertile tree produces prolifically, with clusters of dark red fruit that mature in mid-summer.  English Morellas prefer rich, well-drained, moist soil, and like more nitrogen and water than many sweet cherries. 

English Morella is an outstanding choice for a tasty, tart cherry that both you and your wildlife will adore.

Delicious tart flavor - wonderful pie and jam!!
Very Happy Review by Beginner
My tree is about 5 years old and doing fine. I never tried to grow a fruit tree before so I read up beforehand. I chose Morello for its later fruiting so the birds would be mostly finished feeding their babies - more cheeries for me, less poop for my car. I googled caring for it (easy!). I've pruned it enough to keep fruit within reach and so I can move around my crowded garden, and it doesn'seem to have suffered. It's in scale with my flowers and tall tomatoes. The leaves turn to nothing with astonishing speed after falling. And of course the blossoms are a fairy cloud!
Beauty Review by Frances
I wasn't quite sure what to expect with a bare root tree. I'll say this, it's a lot easier to plant and it was over a foot taller than what was advertised. I bought mine last fall & the buds this spring were stunning! I'm back to buy 2 more.
