PlantLife's Wild Tart Cherries

Sour cherries (also known as “tart cherries”) – just like cherries, only sour. Or tart, if you prefer. Not hard to remember, but well worth checking out for fans of strong flavours and unique natural snacking.

As the name suggests, they have a unique, strong, and sour flavour – naturally delicious and surprisingly addictive. We’re huge fans of sour cherries at PlantLife, and it is one of our missions to get more people to try them – once you’ve had a few of these, you’ll be craving more – we guarantee it!

Origins

We source our sour cherries from areas located near the old Silk Road, from farmers that we personally know. The wild-growing cherries are hand-picked and then pitted, free of any added adulterants or oils. The result is a premium product with great flavour and nutrition. Not only that, but the co-operatives involved in growing these cherries benefit from these premium products, helping their communities flourish and improve their lot in life.

Our modern facilities use a combination of eco-friendly pressure treatment and cutting-edge spectroscopy to check, clean, and select our products, guaranteeing premium quality in every pack. The whole process is done without the use of harmful artificial processing methods, for sustainable snacking that's Right by Nature.

Benefits and Uses

Sour cherries are a source of antioxidants, fibre, and vitamins A, B1, and B2. Vitamin B1 is renowned for its ability to help the body yield energy from food, making cherries great for metabolism.

They’re perfect for a range of uses, including adding to desserts for sour notes, dressing up (plant-based!) cheese boards, pies, or other bland foods, as well as snacking, baking, or adding to mueslis.

FAQ

Tart cherries (Prunus cerasus) and regular cherries (Prunus avium) are two distinct cherry varieties. Tart cherries are typically smaller and more sour in taste, while regular cherries, also known as sweet cherries, are larger and have a sweeter flavor. Both varieties offer unique taste profiles and nutritional benefits.

Tart cherries are good for various aspects of health. They are known for their anti-inflammatory properties, which may help reduce muscle soreness and improve recovery after exercise. Tart cherries are also rich in antioxidants, including anthocyanins, which can support heart health, aid in sleep quality, and contribute to overall well-being.

Tart cherries are also commonly referred to as sour cherries due to their sharp, tangy flavor. They are used in a variety of culinary applications, such as pies, jams, and beverages.

Both sweet cherries and tart cherries offer health benefits, but their nutrient profiles differ. Tart cherries are particularly rich in antioxidants and have been studied for their potential anti-inflammatory effects. Sweet cherries are higher in natural sugars and provide dietary fiber. The choice between them may depend on individual dietary preferences and health goals.

Tart cherries contain dietary fiber, which can support gut health by promoting regular bowel movements and feeding beneficial gut bacteria. Additionally, their antioxidant content may have indirect benefits for gut health by reducing inflammation in the digestive tract. However, a balanced diet with a variety of fruits and vegetables is essential for overall gut health.
