ENGLISH MORELLO  Medium-size dark red fruit, good quality, producing purple-red juice.  Highly productive.  Low, broad-spreading tree makes harvest easy.  Ripens in mid to late July.  

MONTMORENCY The standard pie cherry for commercial and home planting.  Bears early, very productive.  Medium-large dark red fruit, good quality and flavor.  Needs very little disease control if kept open to sun.  Ripens in late July.  

The cherry trees are on the Krymsk 5 and Colt rootstocks.  Krymsk 5 is a dwarf to semi-dwarf rootstock and the Colt is larger.  Besides the varieties listed above we have the ANGELA,  COMPACT LAMBERT, COMPACT STELLA, EMPEROR FRANCIS, and RAINIER.  Also there is another tart cherry called NORTH STAR.
