It’s National Cherry Month so why not discover four surprising facts about this sweet and sour fruit? All facts below are taken from the article in The Oxford Companion to Food:

  1. The sweet cherry was described in about 300 BC by the Greek writer Theophrastus.
  2. In medieval art, cherries represented a sweet, pleasing character, and the delights of the blessed.
  3. The number of cultivated cherry varieties, worldwide, is now estimated to be about 900 sweet and 300 sour.
  4. The Montmorency cherry originated in the valley of that name in the Île-de-France, where a Fête de la Cerise (or Cherry Festival) is still held annually.
