Which moments are truly worth the wait? A pie from out of the oven, a long-awaited holiday, holding a loved one again? Cherries have taken their sweet time, but good things do come to those who wait, and the moment is here at last. Cherry season has arrived, and the Cherry Time store is open!
It’s been a challenging year, but now it’s time to slow down and take stock. To reap the rewards of all the months of making it through. And the prize is the fruit of our labour, the cherry. Sensual, sweet, chirpy and cheerful. You can’t help but smile when a cherry’s tucked in your cheek, releasing all its fruity juices.
When planning festive feasting, a more suitable fruit is hard to imagine. Picture a cocktail – what’s bobbing in the bubbles? A cherry. At a romantic lovers’ picnic, what do they pop into each other’s mouths? Cherries. Think of a special-occasion dessert, hot or cold, scooped or rolled, and what’s it studded with? The telltale flashes of red cherries.
Portable and pretty, cherries are lovely just as they are. Pack them into a basket, a backpack or a lunchbox; no knives necessary. Scatter them over a table, their glowing skins perfect for any theme, from simple farm-style to sparkling elegance. Simmer them in a sauce, bake them in a cake, cover them in cream; or try them in these delicious recipes:

Cherry Time is a brand owned by Dutoit Agri, which has a rich history in the agricultural business, with a legacy going back 120 years. The first cherry orchard was planted at Nooitgedacht, one of the largest cherry farms in the country, in 1890, and those trees are still rooted there today
