A small vigorous tree with upright, spreading branches and rounded top. Spring white flowers in clusters of 2–4 on long pedicels are borne on one year old wood as well as spurs. Because they bloom later than sweet cherries, Montmorency are more dependable fruit producers in cooler climates. The leathery leaves are dark green on top, pale green beneath. It is self fertile and requires no pollinator. the juicy, tart cherries ripen early, just two months after spring bloom. Average yield for a mature tree is 36–44 pints.
