Sour cherry is the fruit of the genus Prunus Cerasus; a small dark red stone fruit with a tart flavour. The fruit is less firm and smaller than sweet cherries and is ideal for processing. The word cherry, or the Latin word cerasum, derives from the ancient Greek region of Kerasous (modern day Giresun, Turkey), from which cherries were first exported to the rest of Europe.
Compared to sweet cherries, raw sour cherries contain much higher nutritional value, for example they contain 50% more Vitamin C and around 20% more Vitamin A per 100g. In 2014, global production of sour cherries was estimated at 1.36 million tonnes.
Our global network of suppliers ensures that we can source the best quality sour cherries, most commonly from Poland, Serbia and Turkey.
