Its irresistible flavor and shiny color make this fruit a true gift of nature. The cherry tastes of home, country life and authenticity. When cherries are in season so is summer.
The rich pulp is wrapped in a fine and shiny dark skin which ranges in color from red to burgundy. You can find them in pairs or in a trio and the crunchiness of the first bite immediately turns into incredible softness.
The cherry is the fruit of the cherry tree (Prunus Avium), a plant belonging to the Rosaceae family. Among the existing varieties, Sant’Orsola cultivates Kordia and Regina.
In order to meet our quality standards, Sant’Orsola cherries must be whole, clean and must not have any damage or marks on their surface. Crunchy, juicy and with a high sugar content, the fruits must have a stalk and must be picked with special care only when fully ripe. Their characteristic color is an intense, bright red. Their very sweet taste is intense and enveloping.
The cherry tree is characterized by a dense foliage; its white flowers, with pinkish stripes, blossom in spring. The trees are considered so beautiful that in the East, especially in Japan, some varieties have been cultivated just for their flowers for centuries.
Originally from Asia Minor and Persia, the cherry tree spread to Egypt and Greece as early as the seventh century BC. However, the first evidence of its presence in Italy dates back to the texts of Varro and Pliny the Elder, who described ten varieties in the his famous "Naturalis Historia".
They are cultivated in accordance with the principles of “Integrated Production”, which follow the current National Guidelines.Find out more about our farming techniques
