Grown in: California
Why We Love Them: Bing cherries are a naturally sweet cherry and therefore need no added sugars. Bing cherries are famed for their anti-inflammatory superpowers, which is probably the reason they’re a popular choice amongst athletes who engage in regular strenuous activity. They're also packed with anthocyanins, a powerful phytonutrient that jump-starts your immune system and gives cherries that gorgeous red hue!
Sustainability Factors: Bing Cherries are grown and sun dried in the warm dry climate of the Central Valley of California. We source our Bing Cherries from a family-run dried fruit business that has been growing fruits and producing dried fruits for over 25 years. They have created a proprietary method of drying fruit without preservatives or additives of any kind which allows them to retain color and integrity of flavor. Approximately 90% of all their waste at the production facility is recycled. Cherries are on the Environmental Working Group (EWG) dirty dozen for pesticide use so as a next step we plan to due some laboratory testing and depending on the results possibly source cherries organically.
