May 2009 - we planted a 300
cherry tree orchard.
2013 we saw our first harvest of about 50 lbs.
This year we are looking foward to an increase in harvest with the potential of selling some as well.
The SK Carmine Jewel dwarf sour cherry is a cultivar
developed at the University of Saskatchewan. It is prairie hardy, growing & producing well in most soil
Two factors add to the benefits of this
tasty prairie fruit:
1. It's ability to produce in our
zones gives it the quality
known as "northern vigor"
2. This fruit is relatively new to the
prairies, thus diseases and pests are few allowing for pure growing conditions.
Cherries have quickly become a
permanent part of our family diet. Their intense flavor, color & nutrition
make an excellent addition to any menu.
Eaten fresh, in season, the cherries are tart yet sweet enough to enjoy.
When frozen & then thawed for a few minutes, the taste is very similar to the fresh picked taste.
Cherries offer superb nutritional
benefits - their true deep red color indicates their intense benefit to the heart, blood, liver etc. A mere 10 cherries per
day offers full health benefits.
The sour cherries are a
cooking cherry with many uses in cherry juice, jams, jellies,
desserts, breakfast dishes & toppings.
