National Cherry Month

The National Cherry Month is a time set out in February to celebrate the all vibrant, edible and dazzling sight cherries. With a long American history that can be traced back to 1610, Cherries have established itself to be one of the most valued fruit in America. It comes in various types as we have the Royal Ann cherry which is being referred to as sweet nothing; Montmorency cherry which is a sour predicament.

Primarily grown in Michigan, cherries could be traced to as far back as 1610 when settlers were said to have brought them into America. Sometimes in 1852, one Peter Dougherty was said to begin planting cherry trees somewhere in the area now known as Michigan. In 1893, Tart cherries were also being planted in Michigan alongside sweet cherries. The first American Maraschino cherries were produced using Liqueur in 1896 as against those that were initially imported from Yugoslavia. In 1920, America had recorded a massive number of Maraschino cherries that cherry importation was put to an end in the country. Today, the maraschino cherries are not just being produced and consumed by American locals alone, it has become one that is exported to other nations of the world. The National Cherry Month unravels regularly the history and the value of this precious and tasty fruit – cherry.
