Growing Calendar for Cherry Crown Morello - tree
Delivery: Early November to Late April
Cherry Morello is a traditional English type cooking cherry, if you would like to make delicious cherry pies, cherry crumbles or jams and preserves that this is simply the best Cherry variety that you can choose! When Morello is cooking it produces a strong and rich cherry flavour.
Morello cherries can be eaten fresh off of the tree when very ripe as they have a sharp-sweet flavour at this stage. Morello does belong to the sour-cherry (prunus cerasus) species rather than the sweet-cherry species (prunus avium) and is grown primarily for culinary uses.
The delicious fruits are smaller than more modern dessert cherries, they look a lot like small seedless grapes. These Morello cherries contain melatonin, this natural substance is an anti-oxidant which helps with regulating sleeping and wakefulness. Cherry Morello is a brilliant pollinator for almost all other Cherry varieties.
