Our new cherry orchard has now come into production. After all the hard work involved in planting, growing and netting the trees, we finally have a crop of this most sought after of fruits.
With 5 varieties on offer, we can extend the short cherry season for 3 weeks. The varieties are, in order of ripening: Early rivers, Stella, Kordia, Regina, Penny.
Most of these cherries ripen from a red through to a dark purple colour or even black. We believe the flavour is best when left on the tree as long as possible (as long as the weather holds out!)
The cherries are usually available in late June- early and mid July although they can come later.
