Cherry, "Montmorency" is a self-pollinating sour cherry and it is the classic for making cherry pie. The medium large fruit is bright red (although some trees produce a darker red fruit) with firm, yellow flesh and clear juice. Ripens early. It is a hybrid between sweet cherry and Nanking cherry, P. tomentosa. The tree produces large fruit and has been cultivated in the United States since at least the early 20th century. "Montmorency" cherries are also marketed in dried form, and "Montmorency" cherry juice and juice concentrate is also sold.

  • Since the early 21st century the "Montmorency" cherry has been promoted as a healthful food, due to several purported health benefits
  • The "Montmorency" cherry matures in early July and will reach an overall height of 15 in. The "Montmorency" cherry does not require another tree for pollination and thus can be the only cherry tree in your yard
  • Basically cherries are planted in two groups named Sweet Cherries or Sour Cherries
  • The sweet cherry is often grown in the orchard for fresh eating from the tree
  • Sour Cherries are often planted to use in cooking into jellies, cherry pies, and cherry ice cream
  • The cherries most popular for eating have derived primarily from the Wild Cherry (P. avium), which has given rise to the Sweet Cherry to which most cherry cultivars belong
  • The Sour Cherry (P. cerasus) is used mainly for cooking
  • Both species originate in Europe and western Asia; they do not cross-pollinate each other
