It’s National Cherry Month! We love February!
It’s National Cherry Month! It seems to come every February, doesn’t it? We thought it would be fun to share news, fun facts, and even fictional information regarding cherries. You may need this info some day!
The view down Seaquist Road may look a bit dreary today, but we don’t mind it! Our cherries are resting, getting ready for another summer bursting with cherries, hopefully!
Do you know the name of the most popular tart cherry? It makes up about 95% of the tart cherries in the world, with the Morello coming in a very distant second. It’s the Montmorency cherry! If you intend to do some baking, these tart cherries are the ones to use, because they have such a wonderful flavor! Here in Door County, Wisconsin, we at Seaquist Orchards raise Montmorency cherries, and lots of them! We have them fresh, when it’s cherry season, and frozen in a variety of sizes at Seaquist Orchards Farm Market. We also put them into our jams, pie fillings, and salsas at Seaquist Canning, along with pies, doughnuts, and other baked goods, not to mention our smoothies too! They are delicious!
