Montmorency Cherries for the 4th

Cherry Filled Bowl

Also known as "sour" cherries. These Montmorency cherries are best for cooking and baking rather than for eating fresh out of hand.

So far this season I have harvested about 1 quart of these sour cherries, which is about 4 times more than I harvested last year! And there are more still ripening on the tree. Yay!

And yes, of course, I will make my World Famous Cherry Pie with them and probably use the remainder of the Sweet Cherries to round out the taste too.

Summer is definitely here! Hot and sunny (and humid) here today.

Have a safe and happy 4th of July weekend, everyone!

a perfect variety for your World Famous cheery pie, tart and tangy.

Good going on a bountiful harvest this year, hopefully there may be more to add to even more cheery pies.

I am always available for cheery pie testing.

Okay, let's not make your fans wait three months this year to see your beautiful pie! Having cherries hanging from my own tree . . . I'm envious! I think we better plant one soon.
