|Food Buzz: History of Cherries||Listen|
The perfect cherry is rounded with a slight heart shape and dimple at its stem end. The size can range from one to three centimeters in diameter. The skin is thin and taut with deep red coloring and brilliant sheen. The inner flesh's color palate is a range of rouge tones. The firm yet juicy pulp surrounds a single stone which may cling tightly or easily pull away depending upon variety. The cherry's flavor is bright and pleasantly sweet tart, mimicking notes of currant, plum, raspberry and blackberry.
Cherries are available year-round with a peak season in late spring and summer.
All cherries are members of the family, Prunus and are descendents of the wild cherry, Prunus avium. They are classified as stone fruits, alongside apricots, plums, peaches and almonds. There are hundreds of cherry cultivars that have evolved naturally and have been developed to improve flavor quality, texture, ability to resist disease and to extend cherry seasons. The most common cherry cultivars are Bing and Brooks, though in the supermarket they are simply labeled 'cherries'. Farmers market varieties include early season cherries such as Sequoia and Sweetheart, cherries named for growing regions such as Tulare and of course, cherries that are named for the cherry developers themselves, such as the Lapin cherry.
Cherries contain anthocyanins, the red pigment inherently found within berries. Anthocyanins are potent antioxidants that are being heavily researched for their potential health benefits, including anti-inflammation and pain reduction. Cherries are also a good source of vitamins A and C, calcium and iron.
Cherries are incredibly versatile extending uses into sweet and savory recipes, raw or cooked preparations, and may be found fresh, dried, frozen, preserved or even pickled. Their inherent sweetness pairs well with strong game meats, most notable water fowl such as duck. It also balances well against salty and creamy cheeses such as burrata, feta, mascarpone and brie. They cook down into silky jams, jellies, pie fillings, dessert toppings, and even chutney or barbecue sauce. They can be preserved in maraschino liqueur or even brandy for cocktails or baking applications. Cherries also pair well with other stone fruit, basil, hazelnut oil, pine nuts, fennel, pistachios, arugula, yogurt, cream, dark chocolate and berries such as blueberry and blackberry.
One of the most famous cherry trees is the Japanese Sakura, which is known for its bountiful spring blossoms. Picnicking under a blooming Sakura or Ume tree is a centuries old practice known as hanami. Hanami gatherings and festivals celebrate the beauty of the cherry blossom as the blossoms are a metaphor for the ephemeral nature of life. Though the Sakura trees are highly renowned for their blossoms, they do not produce fruit.
Cherries are native to China. First documentation of cultivation dates back to 4000 B.C. Cherries were brought through ancient trade routes into Turkey, which is known as the crossroads of Asia and Europe as it has historically been the center of major trade routes. Cherries are named after Cerasus, an agriculturally rich province in northern Turkey along the coast of the Black Sea. Cherry trees flourish in Mediterranean climates and temperate climatic zones that experience four seasons.
