Prunus Cerasus or red fruit (sour cherry, tart cherry) is a species of Prunus in the subgenus Cerasus (cherries), native to much of Europe and southwest Asia. It is closely related to the sweet cherry (Prunus Avium), but has a fruit that is more acidic, has greater nutritional benefits and may have greater medicinal effects. Unlike most sweet cherry varieties, sour cherries are self-pollinizing containing higher content per 100 g of vitamin C (12% DV) and vitamin A (8% DV). Dried sour cherries are mainly known as key ingredient in desserts; especially the cherry pie and are indispensable for preserves, cooking; soups, main course, cakes, tarts, salad, and beverages.
These cherries are sour in taste and are jumbo grade in size, hand selected fully ripe fruits. There may be an occasional pit in the cheries. Imported from Turkey!
