Tuesday 16th July is National Cherry Day!
DID YOU KNOW that just 10 cherries can make up one of your five a day? They are nutritious and help fight disease and other illnesses. Helping you to sleep, serving as a kind of pain-relieving aspirin and fighting against ageing, this is one super-cherry!
The Romans first brought cherries from Persia and introduced them here in Britain. Some even say that ancient roads can be traced from the spots where marching Romans spat out their seeds and caused a new tree to grow!
Our main goal of National Cherry Day is to raise awareness about the need to maintain our traditional orchards! If everyone eats one home-grown cherry each, the future of British cherries will be looking up in no time!
