    Excellent cherry that is usually used for pies. However, if fully ripe or even somewhat over ripe it has an intense cherry flavor. It is still somewhat tart but good for eating fresh if you like tart apples, berries, etc. Good yielding tree that blooms later than most sweet cherries and is more resistance to cracking than sweet cherries as well. I have one mature tree, I wish I had half a dozen.

    I have a Montmorency cherry tree. The cherries are wonderful in pies, in crisps, and preserved in brandy.
