Cherry

The indigenous range of the sweet cherry extends through most of Europe, western Asia and parts of northern Africa, and the fruit has been consumed throughout its range since prehistoric times. Anatolia is also the homeland of Cherries. As raw fruit, sweet cherries provide little nutrient content per 100 g serving. Dietary fiber and vitamin C are present in the most significant content while other vitamins and dietary minerals each supply less than 10% of the Daily Value (DV) per serving, respectively. Compared to sweet cherries, raw sour cherries contain higher content per 100 g of vitamin C (12% DV) and vitamin A (8% DV). Turkey is one of the largest cherry manufacturers and exporters in the world. Z-900 or Z900 is the most popular type of cherry in means of production and exportation. Z-900 variety has dark claret red color shard structure, long and green string with high Brix sweetness values. Elis Global supplies cherries from Aegean and Western Anatolian regions.
