A well-known large English "white" cherry - in practice the skin is predominantly flushed red over a white background.
Merton Glory ripens towards the end of June in southern England.
Deliveries resume December 2020
Like many traditional English cherries, Merton Glory is self-sterile and needs to be pollinated by another compatible cherry tree of a different variety. Most of the modern self-fertile cherries such as Stella are a good match. It is also able to pollinate the very early-flowering Early Rivers cherry, and is a good pollinator for most other early or mid-flowering cherry varieties.
Developed by the John Innes Institute in the 1930s.
