English Cherries


Feels like all my posts will be about food this morning, but keep an eye out for British Cherries in the shops. They will soon be coming into season and are truly delicious. They are picked by hand to minimise damage and to my mind are one of the best British fruits. In fact a punnet of cherries don't last long in my house. Last year my children even put a sign on the fridge door saying "Dad, keep out of the cherries!" Well at least it's a healthy form of fridge grazing!
Check out the information on how they are grown on the Mansfields link. They are the largest growers of cherries in western Europe.
