Fresh sour cherries

blinky Jul 7, 2009 08:38 AM


I live in Toronto and was wondering if anyone could tell me what time of year do sour cherries usually become available and where. (morello cherries - the dark red kind). I am looking to get about 100 lb of fresh cheeries to make a cherry liquor for me and my brother.

    One of the vendors at the MyMarket at Sick Kids today had a few pints of "sour cooking cherries". First I've seen this year. They were the red ones, although not quite as dark as the sweet cherries.

      I was just going to post about them! I'm very excited about mine - I always seem to miss them.

        The Cherries on my tree are 2 weeks away, but towards Niagara they will be earlier.
        E.D. Smith (Niagara-ish) has pick your own Montmorency sour cherries that will be ready next week.
