Ciliegi nostrani


Today the sweet cherries came to shining-red, taut and juicy ripeness. 

Carmine cherries. 

No carcinogens, no hormone disruptors, no neurotoxins, no bee toxins. 

No Boscalid, no Bifenthrin, no Carbaryl, no Propiconazole. 

Just C02 and rainwater and sunlight.  

Firm, smooth cherries, straight from branch to mouth. 

My little tree-climbing monkeys didn't leave much left over for jam...

Gorgeous and great description. Ours are also ripening beautifully and I think will need picking before June 1st. Local legend tells us they should never be harvested before this date though!

Interesting. From the top of his tree yesterday, my neighbour, F., 60 years old and weighing about 20 stone, told me that Carmine cherries are always early...

Yum - organic, natural, as God designed! Well written description - mouth-watering! I always loved the German word we used to say about cherries - knackig!
