Nothing says summer in Australia like a brimming bowl full of lush, sweet cherries! BiteRiot! cherries commence early to mid-December and peak during the Christmas period, finishing off in early to mid-January.
What are your different varieties like?
- Rons cherries or Ron’s Seedling cherries
- Mid-season, popular and versatile cherry with slightly thick black skin and juicy deep red flesh. The large heart-shaped fruit is equally good fresh or cooked.
- Bing cherries
- Almost the iconic cherry – big, heart-shaped fruit with dark red skin and lovely firm ruby-red flesh. Eat them fresh or cooked, they are sweet and slightly rich, best late in the season.
- Stella cherries
- The Christmas cherry! Adorning many a table from mid-December, they’re medium to large, heart-shaped, dark red, with sweet and firm flesh.
- Lapin cherries
- These large ‘late bloomers’ are available mid-December to January and have dark red skin with golden-red flesh.
- Sweetheart cherries
- A late maturing medium sized fruit, mild and sweet with bright red skin.
- Simone cherries
- Similar to Lapin cherries.
- Sweet Georgia cherries
- A late maturing selection of Lapins, very similar in appearance and characteristics.
- Regina cherries
- Medium-large, heart-shaped fruit. Deep red skin and flesh with good flavour.
- Kordia cherries
- Another late season variety, with large, firm mahogany coloured fruit on very long stems. Excellent flavour and well suited to our cool climate.
