I have a morello, are they good or bad?


I believe they are a cooking cherry but not 100% on that fact. I'm sure someone will correct me if I am wrong


Yep, a cooker. Ours is absolutely dripping with fruit this year

Cheers,
Rob.

Bloke near us puts a radio in his tree as the cherries are starting to ripen (the power of Johnnie Halliday!) - only works if you have no neighbours I guess.

Our trees are still giving.

Made cherry and red currant jam last night (finished about 11.30!). Very nice. The red currant gives a nice bit of tartness.

I need to put my brain in gear. I read this and wondered how M. Halliday's warbling would promote ripening.
