Sour Cherry Tree

Hello, everyone! πŸ“·πŸ˜Ž

Sour cherries, which we call 'viΕ‘nje,' are a different form of cherry (Prunus cerasus). They are smaller than their sweet cousins and have a pronounced sourness that makes them less popular for fresh eating.

Anyone following me probably knows I look after my mother's orchard. I wouldn't say I look after it very much, but I try to cut the grass regularly in the summer. Anyway, this year, the grass is growing like crazy because we have had a month of intense rain. The climate has calmed down a bit, and it hasn't rained for a few days, so it's mowable. This is the third time this year. And a couple of days ago, when I got home from work, I started mowing again. In a reasonable hour, I had mowed almost the whole orchard.

A short pause: I need to refuel the lawnmower. The orchard is old because the fruit trees, plum, apple, and pear trees, are over eighty years old. Most of the trees have already flowered, and I described how the apple and pear trees blossomed in my last photo-essay post about a month ago. But I noticed that the only sour cherry tree in the orchard was full of ripe cherries. Since I took a break and had my phone in my pocket, I took some photos.

The sour cherry tree is smaller than a cherry tree.

The fruits are smaller and darker, and as I mentioned, they are very sour and difficult to eat as fresh fruit. However, their unique aroma and characteristics work exceptionally well in the kitchen. Their acidity perfectly complements sugar and makes delicious desserts, jams, juices, and syrups. Sour cherries are an indispensable ingredient in traditional Slovenian desserts, such as sour cherry strudel, pies, and liquor.

I continued mowing, and the orchard was cut.

If it is sunny and dry for two weeks, as the weather forecasters predict, grass growth will slow down, but it's time to pick up all those sour cherries and make something out of them. :)

Thank you for your attention!

Seeing the sour cherry, wants me to eat the fruit too. Despite its sourness, I know it would be good when combined with salt. 😁

ViΕ‘nje πŸ˜‚ I can’t eat them before they are just too sour. However, making jam from them with plenty of sugar makes them quite enjoyable πŸ€” But still, čreΕ‘nje are better ;)

I know about sour cherry fruit from your post. I love sweet cherry fruits. This fruit is expensive in our country. You captured some beautiful images of cherry fruits.

Hello dear friend @seckorama good morning I love cherries, we use them a lot in cakes here.

I'm not surprised that the grasses are growing a lot if you are having rainy days, it's good that it has calmed down a little now.

I think the weather has been rainy in almost the entire world, in my city it has rained more than necessary

It's great that you collaborate with your mother's garden, you are doing a great job cutting the grass and picking the cherries.

Thank you very much for sharing this experience, have a beautiful day

It's very interesting to hear about the orchard and the sour cherries dearest. They might be too sour to eat fresh, but they definitely make great jam. It's nice you're keeping the orchard tidy despite the rain. Wishing you the best of luck dearest

rafzat :
