The Montmorency Cherry Tree is a top-rated sour cherry, and an heirloom variety of renown. It has bright red cherries that make the world’s best pies, baked goods and preserves, and can also be cooked in syrup for terrific desserts. A tree to 15 feet or more, it can also be effectively grown as an espalier on a wall or tall fence. It has heavy crops of over 50 pounds per tree, and is much easier to grow in colder areas than sweet cherries are. The handsome mahogany bark and pure-white spring blossoms make it attractive in any flower garden.

  • The best sour cherry for baking and preserves
  • bright red cherries in abundance
  • Harvest in June
  • Can be grown even in zone 4
  • Entirely self-pollinating

Hardy in zone 4, the Montmorency Cherry Tree grows best in colder areas. It thrives in most well-drained soils, growing best in richer, moist soils, including slightly alkaline ones. It is relatively free of pests and diseases and easy to grow. Some pruning in late winter will help it give the biggest crops and control its size. Entirely self-pollinating, and can be grown without any other cherry trees around it. However it won’t pollinate sweet cherries.
