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.
