Cherries nutrition

A

specialist breed, Jerrte

Picota cherries are

grown with no additives,

following century-long

family customs on

terraces carved out of the high mountains

in Spain's Jerte Valley, watered by crystalclear springs and in pure

air. Only this

location, with a privileged microclimate,

can grow the best cherries, with a sweet

taste and unique appearance.

The Jerte Valley, which lies South-West

of Madrid in the Cáceres region, northern

Extremadura, is famous for its incredible

white cherry blossom that appears on

more than a million trees on the slopes

of the valley each springtime, usually

from the last 10 days of March and the

first 10 days of April, flowering for about

two weeks. This is celebrated in a Cherry

Trees in Blossom Festival, applauding the

imminent arrival of the next harvest.

To make sure you are getting real

Jerte Picota cherries, look for the red and

yellow PDO logo (Protected Designation

of Origin status) on each punnet of

cherries. This certifies that the fruit has

been grown, harvested by hand and

packed under rigorous quality controlled

procedures, and has come exclusively

from the Jerte Valley. The Jerte Picota is

unique because of its PDO status and

also because it is harvested without its

stalk and has a unique shape, with a

slight peak at the base, giving it the name

'Picota' or 'peaked'.

Dishes have been specially created by

top Spanish chefs (see over for recipe).

Sorting Jerte Picota cherries by hand. If you look, you might

find Jerte Picota cherries featured in Spanish restaurants,

especially in London, at this time of year.
