Montmorency Pie Cherry Tree - Worlds most popular pie cherry! (2 years old and 3-4 feet tall.)
Montmorency is the most popular cherry tree in the United States! Without a doubt also the most flavorful and widely used for all culinary purposes. These cherries are quite distinct from sweet cherries in their appearance, and more importantly in their flavor. These cherries are prized not for their sweetness, but for their fantastic sour tasting notes! Their sourness allows the cherry flavor to be carried through baking and cooking, and melts together with sugars to produce a wide variety of perfectly balanced tasting notes. Perhaps unknown to most, Montmorency is typically the only choice in grocery stores for pie cherries and is also the preferred variety used for making maraschino cherries as well. A lesser known and amazing quality of this cultivar is that it will produce fruit up to three years sooner than any other sweet cherry tree! Montmorency trees also remain smaller in height and width than other cherries while also producing fruit sooner. If you're looking for a cherry tree to sooner produce fruit with infinite uses beyond just fresh eating, Montmorency is an excellent choice!

What will you receive?
When you order a tree from Online Orchards, you can expect it to arrive packaged in one of two ways depending on the growing season. When the trees are dormant in November through June, the roots are dipped in a thick gelatinous hydrogel solution which really acts as a sponge of water surrounding the roots that the tree can pull moisture from as needed during its time in shipment! After being dipped, the roots are then sealed in an airtight green wrap that both holds the hydrogel in place and protects the roots. If you order a tree between the months of June and October, when the weather becomes to warm to ship bare-root trees any longer, you can expect to receive them growing in a tall pot filled with shavings, sawdust, or soil, depending on what's best for your specific variety of tree!
