Montmorency Tart Cherry Tree


Montmorency originated in the Montmorenecy Valley, France. The tree is fruitful and productive. The fruit ripens in mid-season and it is good quality. Montmorency is good for making juice, cooking, compote, and fresh eating when it is fully mature. Because of its firm flesh and thick skin, it is less susceptible to brown rot. The tree is self-fertile. It is cold hardy and is best grown in cold hardiness zones 4-8.

General Tree Height/Caliper: Our grafted/budded apple, peach, apricot, plum, pear, nectarine, and cherry trees are about 4-6' tall with a caliper/diameter of about 1/4-3/4". Most have more than 5' height and 1/2" diameter. Most other trees are seedlings ranging from 18-36" tall. You know if a tree is a seedling when the rootstock selected says "Seedling".
