Sour cherries, also known as tart cherries or pie cherries, are fast becoming known as a type of superfruit. These cherries contain a special combination of nutrients with a range of health benefits:

  • Anthocyanins: These compounds have strong anti-inflammatory properties, and can also help to inhibit the growth of tumours.
  • Flavonols: Improve circulation, promote heart and brain health, and control blood pressure levels.
  • Phytochemicals and phenolic acids, which are full of disease-fighting antioxidants.
  • Tart cherries are also alkalising foods, helping to combat conditions like gout which are caused by excess acidity in the body.

Did You Know? Cherries are one of the world’s few known natural food sources of melatonin, a hormone that helps to regulate your body’s sleep patterns.

Not sour enough for my taste… which ever sweetening agent used masks the taste of the cherries
15/03/2022, By Sigal
Very moist and tasty. The only reason it doesn't get 5 stars is the price. Also wish the package was bigger.

Delicious and very moreish. I eat a few after lunch when I crave sweet things and they satisfy that desire. I would just like them to come in a bigger more economical size, because they are expensive

Really lovely cherries
29/05/2020, By Martina
I did order the dried cherries because of the great reviews. Hence, my expectation was high. However, when I tried the cherries I was surprised because the bag was really tiny and the cherries tasted like high quality raisins but just softer, terribly sweet and a bit not sour at all. But I must say that they are very soft and chewy! For my tase, way too sweet and I could not really taste the typical cherry flavour at all... Wouldn't buy it again.

Sweet and juicy but kills the enjoyment of the actual fruit.
09/10/2019, By Ashwin
Way too sweet, unnatural. Durban had a few trees with the whole fruit... Tasted great.

Tart but delicious. Whether sweet sour or black, cherries are sublime.

I love the tangy flavor and chewy texture!
04/07/2018, By Michael
Pricy, but well worth it, the taste is great.
28/04/2018, By Kate
Oh my goodness - these are just the BEST! I have a real sweet tooth and I would choose these little nature's-candies over man-made sugar-laden sweeties every time. The packet is pricey but it is totally worth the expense :) :)
16/02/2018, By Jeannie
Never disappointed with By Nature products. Oooh, these sour cherries are good.
10/02/2018, By Penny
These are really delicious, tart and with a nice depth of flavour
12/11/2017, By Rosalind
These cherries are delicious, next time I order I need to order a bigger bag, or more of them.
11/11/2017, By Maureen
Glad I bought them as I have been missing the dried cherries I used to buy in Hartbeespoort now I have moved to George.

I do find them a little sweet for sour cherries (the apple juice) but overall they work for what I use them for - mainly to add interest to my vegan brownies.
11/09/2017, By Sonette
can I have some more please. truly shocked at how delicious they are
24/09/2016, By Karin
These are sooo good, and of course so good for you as well.

to my yoghurt or smoothie...with a definite complex taste. Love em.
05/02/2016, By Piera
These are so delicious, and work particularly well in a cacao smoothie - the combination of tartness and chocolaty richness is amazing. About to order some more!
08/10/2015, By Catherine
Oooh, these are really REALLY good :) And it is near impossible to just have one or two- before you know it you have scoffed half the bag and need to remove it from arms length in order to stop eating. They start deliciously sweet, packed full of cherry flavour, before ending on a tart note. Delish!
13/04/2015, By Kalai
i had a plan in my head of eating a little everyday, until i opened the bag and then i was throwing the empty packaging in the bin. addictive, very very addictive.

There is nothing sour about these cherries - a wonderful sweet snack and a very novel gift too. My Dad loved them as part of his fathers day hamper.
