Montmorency Pie Cherry

Prunus cerasus Summer. Seedling of Cerise Hâtive or Cerise Commune. Montmorency Valley, France, before 1600. Introduced to the U.S. about 1830.

The most famous of all pie cherries. Not widely grown in Europe or Russia but long the standard of excellence in the U.S. Firm-fleshed bright red fruit makes a clear light pink juice.

Surprisingly hardy, though not as hardy as Evans. Our Aroostook County test orchard trees fare better than Meteor. Should do really well from central Maine south. Appears to be resistant to brown rot.

Vigorous productive medium-sized upright-spreading tree tolerates a variety of soils. Z3/4. (2½-6' bare-root trees)
