It's not true to say that morello cherries don't need sun to sweeten them. I've grown them for many years and they're only any good in a sunny summer, when they turn nearly black. When red, they're completely inedible.

    Morello cherries are an acid or sour cherry,  traditionally grown primarily for culinary use, in bottling, pie filling, preserving etc.  They are supposed to have a sour taste when uncooked.  I've always found that they perform really well espaliered on a north-facing wall. image
