Cherries date back as far back as 300 B.C. and are named after the Turkish town of Cerasus. In the Niagara Peninsula cherries have been enjoyed not only for their luscious sweet, tart flavour, but also for their magnificent beauty during the blossom period. There are mainly two types of cherries, sweet cherries and tart (sour) cherries. Look for our fresh new cherry pail design!
