Duo Cherry Tree - 2 Varieties on One Tree 1.4m
Item number MKXPX
The Duo Cherry Tree gives you 2 delicious varieties on one tree!Grow fruit trees in the minimum of space! These incredible 'duo fruit trees' have been carefully grafted by highly skilled nurserymen, to create 2 different fruit varieties growing on one tree!
What's more, the rootstocks are dwarfing, meaning your trees will always remain compact - perfect for anyone who loves the idea of picking their own home-grown fresh fruit, but has limited space.
Each of the varieties will produce bumper crops of delicious full sized fruit! Because they are already trained into a V shape, they are perfect for growing up a wall.
This tree will produce 'Stella' and 'Morello' fruits. Stella Cherry is 'Self-Fertile' (which means it does not need a second variety of cherry tree to pollinate it) and is a really heavy, reliable cropper because it has good resistance to late frosts. Unlike most other sweet cherry varieties, it will thrive in slightly exposed locations but can also be grown in a pot on your patio. The sweetly flavoured dark-skinned, plump and juicy, aromatic fruits will be ready to pick from mid/late July each year and from the third growing season onwards you can expect upwards of 5kg (11lbs) of sweet fruits per tree, which will save a small fortune compared to paying supermarket prices!
Morello Cherry is often referred to as 'The Cooking Cherry' because it is the variety most frequently used for making the pies and jams we all know and love! The fruits are packed with juice and the skin colour is dark red.
It is one of the most reliable croppers of all the sour cherries because it is self-fertile, late flowering and so less susceptible to frost damage, plus it is incredibly disease resistant - a real winner for any garden! Morello is also a great tree to grow on a north-facing wall because even in a cooler position with low light levels it will still thrive. You can usually expect to pick the fruits from late August onwards.
