Consuming fruits such as European picota cherries is recommended in a healthy diet. Cherries contain Serotonin, Tryptophan and Melatonin as well as 8 types of vitamins, trace elements, flavonoids, antioxidants, ellagic acid and fibres.
Cherries spread across Europe thanks to the Roman Empire, who considered this small fruit as Nectar of the Gods.
Nowadays picota cherries are harvested individually by hand, just like they were in the past. Cultivation methods are traditional; they pass down generation to generation with this ancestral countryside flavour.
Thanks to cherry farming, many rural areas keep their population, and, at the same time, its natural surroundings are respected, thereby reaching a symbiosis between humans and nature. European picota cherries are a mountain crop, since cherry trees need the altitude and cold climate in winter to grow and produce sweet fruits.
