The Cherry Orchard: Before and After

Prunus cerasus (sour cherry tree) is a species of cherry related to the sweet cherry but its fruit are more acidic.

It all started in May this year. The sour cherrries were barely showing their light green fruit in the sun light.

Who would have thought that after precisely one month of heavy rain they would reach fruition and turn red?

And yes, they are as bio as you can get, they have only seen sun and rain, a lot of rain!

    How wonderful these cherries, sour cherries make such great jam. I love cherries and here in Britain you don’t see many trees and it is always expensive to buy some, I did though yesterday. Cherries are one of the best fruit to eat for your health apparently! So tuck in! I’ll come over for the cake later… 🙂

  2. Wow – those look delicious!! Such a wonderful color…

  3. I have a cherry tree in my garden and I am very excited for when it gets fruit!

    They look a lot like ones we have that are called Nanking cherries but ours has a shorter stem and are not sour. They are awesome for jam and syrup. They look very yummy. Enjoy!
