Fresh Napoleon Cherries
Country Of Origin: Turkey
Napoleon cherries are available for a short season in the late spring and early summer.
Renowned for their quality and taste across the world, Turkish Napoleon cherries have become a favourite of everyone who tries them. The Cherries are a delicious treat with high anti-inflammation properties.
Napoleon cherries are large and sweet, making them well suited for fresh eating. The fruits can be consumed straight, out of hand, discarding the pit, or they can be sliced and tossed into green salads, fruit salads, and acai bowls. They can also be blended into smoothies, juiced for lemonade and fruit punches, halved and served on appetizer platters, or used as edible decorations on ice cream, cakes, pies, and tarts.
Napoleon cherries contain anthocyanins, the red and purple pigments found within the skin and flesh that contain antioxidant-like properties to reduce inflammation and protect the cells against free radical damage. The fruits are also a source of vitamin C to strengthen the immune system, vitamin A to maintain healthy organ functioning, potassium to balance fluid levels within the body, and other amounts of iron, calcium, and magnesium.
