July is one of our favourite times of year as it marks tart cherry harvest season for our most loved super fruit! And following a pleasant spring and the recent fine weather, there has been a boom in Britain’s cherry crop, which is definitely something for us to shout about!
For the first time ever, British cherries hit the supermarket shelves in early June this year and are expected to last right through to September, making this year the longest and largest season ever recorded. The boom was sparked by the fifth warmest winter since records began; meaning blossom began appearing on trees earlier than usual.
Cherries are also likely to be larger, sweeter and juicier thanks to these high temperatures earlier this year. Cherry Good we hear you say? We think so too.
