Morello "sour" Cherries

Morello cherries are a variety of "sour "cherry .  They give that really strong (natural) cherry flavour to anything you cook and are used for desserts (think wicked cherry pie), jams, liquors and wine.  Morello cherries lose the sourness once cooked.  They are very rare and hard to find.  Morello cherries are sought after for their health giving properties, as they are a rich source of antioxidants and contain the two powerful compounds anthocyanins and bioflavonoids.  Morello cherries also freeze well for later use.
Morello cherries are now ripening and will be available to buy from Thursday 27th December 2018, sorry no pick-up at this farm.
The Morello sour cherries are usually available until mid January depending on seasonal demand.
