DID YOU KNOW?
Morello Cherry; English Morello Cherry - Also known as Black Sour Cherries:
Seldom found fresh. This sour cherry with dark red skin and flesh is used in a variety of processed products.
The blood-red juice is used in making liqueurs and brandies. The cherries can be found canned, packed in syrup,
dried and in preservatives. The sharp, sour taste makes the Morello unsuitable for eating raw, but perfect for cooking.
Something new to Fix Bros this year is the self-propelled platform making the pruning job more efficient.
