English Morello Cherry

Tolerates heat better than others, performs well in areas of less chill such as southern California. A dwarfing type matures at 9 feet height, (similar to North Star and 6 feet shorter than Montmorency). Excellent for pies. Self-fertile (a lone tree will produce) and is a good pollinizer of other cherries. Cold hardy zone 5. (400 chill hours required). Ripens in late season. Shipped as a dormant, bareroot tree.
I'm gardening elsewhere.
