This is what makes it very attractive. In addition to these three sour cherry tree varieties, you will find more varieties here in our sour cherry tree category.

Harvesting sour cherry trees

When it comes to nibbling cherries, sweet cherries are without doubt preferred to sour cherries. These develop their true strengths less than raw fruit that comes from the tree into the mouth. Rather, sour cherries in desserts, cakes, jams or sauces are real classics of fruit cuisine because of their fruity acidity. What would a delicious Black Forest cherry cake be without dark sour cherries? Of course, sour cherries with sweetness make for a pleasant treat. But their acidity is noticeable in any case and this is what makes the sour cherry tree varieties so appealing.

Sour cherries are harvested a little later than sweet cherries, which are often ripe for harvest from June onwards. As with sweet cherry trees, care must be taken to ensure that birds do not get a lion's share. Cherries that have burst in heavy rain can also spoil the joy of harvesting. Therefore, you should always keep an eye on the weather when harvesting cherries in order not to miss the ideal harvest time.

After harvesting, the cherries are cleaned of coarse dirt, washed and pitted. Depending on their use, they are boiled with water and sugar. This provides a basis for many delicious sour cherry recipes, which are very tasty as jams, marmalades, stewed cherries or cherry sauces. Sour cherries are also excellent in combination with other soft fruits.
