LAVISHY design & wholesale cherry themed fun vegan fashion accessories and gifts
Cherry is one of the most beloved fruits in North America and many part of the world. These little fruits are cute and lovely outside, sweet and juicy inside, they have made their way into our hearts.
Historically there have been two main types of cherries: sweet cherries and sour cherries. Sweet cherries are those we eat directly while sour cherries are found in a variety of processed forms which are also known as "tart cherries" in the United States. They make up the majority of the processed cherries from pie fillings to dried cherries, cherry preserves and cherry juice. Compared to sweet cherries, sour cherries tend to hold their shape and texture better in cooking, and their tartness mellows into a deep, sweet flavour making them highly prized for all processed cherry products. Around 80% of the world's cherry varieties were bred in a Canadian research centre in British Columbia's Okanagan Valley.
On the average a cherry tree can produce 7,000 cherries and it can be harvested in just seven seconds thanks to the introduction of mechanical tree shakers. But because the machine is so intense, it shortens a tree’s life by seven years. The top 3 countries in the wolrd that produce cherries are Turkey, United States and Ukraine.
Washington, California and Oregon are the primary sweet cherry producing states, accounting for almost 90 percent of the quantity produced nationwide. The primary tart cherry producing state is Michigan, accounting for nearly 74 percent of tart cherry production. Traverse City, Michigan, is known as the Cherry Capital of the World. While 95% of the cherries grown in Canada are in British Columbia with top three regions blessed with ideal growing conditions are the Okanagan Valley, the Similkameen Valley and the Creston Valley.
Colors vary from yellow to deep blackish-red, cherries are not just pretty and tasty, they are jam-packed with fiber, vitamins, and minerals that are great for our health. They are rich in antioxidants and anti-inflammatory compounds. These high antioxidant contents help to combat oxidative stress which is linked to multiple chronic diseases and premature aging. Cherries are especially high in polyphenols, these group of plant chemicals can help fight cellular damage, reduce inflammation and protect against many chronic conditions, including heart disease, diabetes, mental decline and certain cancers. Beside promoting overall health, they’re also low in calories! Foe one cup around 154 grams of sweet, raw, pitted cherries have only 97 calories. What a sweet deal?!
