Description

Prunus cerasus ‘Montmorency

The Montmorency Cherry Tree produces the United States most popular sour cherry.  It is considered the best cherry for pie making.  This deliciously tart cherry matures in June and is bright red in color, medium in size, and has a clear juicy flesh.  In spring, brilliant snow-white flowers are followed by a great number of clusters of red sour cherries in July.  Because it’s self-pollinating, only one tree is needed to produce buckets of delicious, tangy cherries.

The tree grows 15-20 feet tall with a similar spread.  Montmorency Cherry trees can be maintained at any height with pruning. As with all sour cherry’s it has a beautiful round shape for a featured spot in the landscape.

It is extremely winter hardy and very adaptable.  Fruiting time can take 3-4 years depending on soil and planting site.

Hardy to -30°
Maximum elevation: 6,000 ft
