The Cherry 'Morello' on Gisela rootstock is a remarkable union of a well-loved tart cherry variety and a robust, dwarfing rootstock. Originating from the Morello cherry, known for its dark, flavorful, and succulent fruits, this tree produces cherries that are highly prized for culinary uses, particularly in pies, jams, and beverages due to their rich, tart flavor. The fruits are characterized by a dark red to almost black coloration when ripe.

Grafted onto Gisela rootstock, the 'Morello' benefits from enhanced hardiness, disease resistance, and suitability to various soil types, making it an excellent option for diverse growing environments. Gisela rootstock also induces dwarfing characteristics, ensuring that the tree maintains a manageable and compact size. This characteristic makes it particularly advantageous for gardeners with limited space or those seeking to optimize orchard planting densities. It also allows for easier harvesting and maintenance, making it a preferred choice for both novice and experienced growers.

Moreover, the combination of 'Morello' and Gisela provides a high-yielding tree, with substantial productivity, even in less-than-ideal conditions. The resilient nature of this union ensures a consistent and bountiful supply of cherries, much to the delight of gardeners and commercial growers alike. The addition of Gisela rootstock to the 'Morello' cherry tree thus presents an innovative solution for sustainable and efficient cherry production.

Gisela rootstock is renowned for cherry trees due to its dwarfing ability, promoting smaller, more manageable tree sizes. It encourages early fruit production, higher yields, and enhanced fruit quality. Suited to diverse soil types, Gisela is resistance-prone, reducing susceptibility to certain diseases, making it favorable for optimizing cherry cultivation.

About Us

During this time, we have developed a large stock of trees, mature evergreen shrubs, conifers, Japanese maples, cedars and olives. What sets us apart from a generic garden center is solid unwavering focus on trees and some bigger shrubs. You will find thousands of trees, hundreds of varieties and lots of experts who are working on the nursery and more than willing to help you to choose a plant for you.

What you will not find is hot tubs, garden furniture and plastic garden gnomes. In a nutshell, trees is what we know and trees is what we do, and only trees (and some shrubs to go with the trees).
