A cross between Montmorency and a russian variety, Meteor is a tart cherry that produces a dark red skin and yellow flesh. Great for baking, freezing, drying, and juicing, we like to make Montmorency into dried cherries and use Meteor for fruit leather. Although Meteor would probably make just as great of a dried cherry. The tree has large, heavy, dark green foliage that protects the cherries from the birds and sun scald. They also resist leaf spot. Meteor is also one of the most cold hardy tart cherries and can be planted in zone 3. Self-fertile but may produce more if planted with a Danube or even some Nankings for cross-pollination.
