English Morello Pie Cherry

Prunus cerasus Summer. Netherlands or Germany, before 1860. Sometimes called Grosse Cerise a Ratafia, Grosse Lang Lothkirsche, Griotte du Nord, Morris and Colorado Morello.

Very dark red-black skin. Dark red flesh and juice. Excellent culinary cherry, recommended for pies and all other cookery. Ripens late, after Montmorency.

Distinctive small roundish tree with drooping branches. Brown-rot resistant.

One of the most famous of all pie cherries. Despite the name we know it by, it is thought to have originated on the Continent, eventually finding its way to England and then to North America. Z4/5 (2½-6' bare-root trees)
