Montmorency Cherry Tree
Grow your own large, juicy, tart cherries.
The Montmorency Cherry Tree (Prunus cerasus 'Montmorency') produces the United States most popular sour cherry. It is considered the very best cherry for making pies.
This highly prized cherry tree will welcome spring with brilliant, snow-white flowers in spring followed by a great number of clusters of red sour cherries in July.
The fruit is large sized with bright red skin. The flesh is amber and the juice is clear. Because it’s self fertile only one tree is needed to produce armloads of delicious, tangy cherries.
The tree grows 25 to 30 feet tall with a spread close to the same. It is extremely winter hardy and heavy bearing.
You will not be disappointed with this outstanding sour cherry. Grow the Montmorency cherry; it is the standard by which pie cherries are judged.
