National Cherry Day
Did you know that just 10 cherries can make up one of your five a day? They are nutritious and help fight disease and other illnesses. Helping you to sleep, serving as a kind of pain-relieving aspirin and fighting against ageing, this is one super-cherry!
The main goal of National Cherry Day is to raise awareness about the need to maintain our traditional orchards! If everyone eats one home-grown cherry each, the future of British cherries will be looking up in no time!
Cherries have a short growing season and you’ll find them in most warm climates. Most of the time they peak in summer but in Australia they peak at Christmas!
And they can be eaten in so many different ways. With ice cream, in cherry cheesecake or as part of a sauce served with duck.
