The first jumbo, super sweet Sequoia Bing cherries of the season are in from our friend Kyle. Yes, the same cherry guru that grows that grows our King Kyle Washington Cherries in August is showing them how it’s done in California. Sequoia Cherries are a sign that summer is on its way! Everyone in your family will enjoy this tasty fruit.
A cup of Kyle’s sweet Sequoia cherries has only 90 calories and is a good source of fiber and vitamin C. Researchers have identified a group of naturally occurring chemicals abundant in cherries that could help lower blood sugar levels in people with diabetes. Results of a preliminary study by the U.S. Agriculture Research Service suggest that some natural compounds in plump, juicy cherries may even reduce painful arthritic inflammation.
Kyle’s Sequoia Cherries can be fun for kids to eat too! Take them outside and have a contest to see who can spit their cherry pit the farthest! If you’re feeling ambitious you can pit the cherries and add them to a fresh fruit salad. Have a sweet tooth? Bake a fresh cherry pie that everyone will enjoy. Of course, cherries make the perfect sundae topping too!
