Prunus cerasus 'Morello' is a small deciduous tree of spreading, compact, rounded habit, with ovate, serrated, green leaves, attractive white blossoms, followed by dark red, sour fruits in late summer. It’s a good and reliable cropper. Sour cherries are smaller than sweet cherries and have bitter-sour taste. They are perfect for cooking, baking, especially in pies, tarts, jams, and preserves, also for making wine or cherry brandy. Morrello Sour Cherry grows best in moderately fertile, moist, well-drained soils, but will tolerate most soil types as long as they are well-drained. It thrives in full sun or partial shade. It is resistant of frost, but needs to be protected from harsh winter winds. Self-fertile plant but for best fruit, two or more plants should be planted nearby. Low maintenance plant, doesn’t require much pruning. Prunus cerasus 'Morello' is a beautiful flowering tree great for small gardens. Perfect for wall-side borders or informal hedges. Grown mostly for its fruit.

Arundel Arboretum is a shrub and tree retail nursery with over 40 years of experience.

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).
