Our packaging is sous-vide ready (the process of cooking meat in their packaging in hot water for a prolonged time) for water temperatures up to 95°C (200°F). We do not recommend temperatures close to the boiling point but temperatures around 60°C (140°F) with a cooking period between 45 minutes and 3 hours, depending on the type and thickness of the meat.

One full bag of Japan certified organic JAS, fresh frozen sweet dark cherries from the pristine mountainous region of Turkey. Hand-picked, washed, mechanically pitted, and individually flash-frozen (IQF) right after harvest for freshness. Absolutely no added sugars, sodium, or refined starches. No use of chemically synthesized fertilizers and pesticides. See more about certified organic below.

These seedless cherries are sweeter and darker in color, compared to the sour cherries. These can be used for anything the heart desires. Cakes, granolas, cocktails, smoothies, ice-cream, or just like that - frozen. 

All our imported fruits and vegetables are strictly tested for E Coli, coliforms, molds, yeasts as well as listeria and salmonella in the country of export, in the country of packaging, and through selective sampling during import inspections in Japan and therefore meet very high microbiological safety standards. However, non-processed products of natural origin, especially non-GMO and certified organic will always have a certain degree of minor defects (less than 5%) these include, decolorations, insect damage, broken damage, crumble damage, squashed damage, over or under maturity, and minor natural non-harmful mold.

About Certified Organic

This product is certified Japan Agricultural Standard Organic (JAS) - both in the country of origin and Japan. Japan has one of the world's strictest organic certification standards. But what does certified organic mean when it comes to fruits and vegetables?

✔ Strictly tested for E Coli, coliforms, molds, yeasts as well as listeria and salmonella and therefore meets very high microbiological safety standards.

✔ Free of harmful synthetic chemical inputs such as fertilizer, pesticides or any food additives.

✔ Free of genetically modified seeds (non-GMO)

✔ The farmland and soil in use are free of any chemical treatments.

✔ Organic produce is heavily regulated. Producers and importers are checked and inspected by governmental bodies or certified third parties. Organic certification requires detailed bookkeeping and documentation for 100% tracability. "Certified organic" is a protected word and the use is legally restricted.

✔ Organic farming is a more sustainable when it comes to holistic food production. The lack of harmful pesticides is better for the environment.

✔ Organic produce comes mostly from family-owned farms that own smaller acres of organic land.

It is also important to mention that organic produce is more cost-intensive. Organic farming has lower yields compared to conventional farming and is oftentimes more labor-intensive as well. Additionally, organic certification and auditions require annual fees for producers, exporters, and importers resulting in higher prices for the end consumers.

Please note that non-processed, non-GMO, and chemical-free produce will always have a minor degree of defects; these may include, decolorations, insect damage, broken damage, crumble damage, squashed damage, over or under maturity, and minor natural non-harmful mold. Although rare, there may worms, scratches or mold on the product that cannot be seen during inspections. None of these are harmful or a safety issue and can be removed without worries.

Really loved this sweet dark cherry.
I blend this cherry with almond milk and protein to make smoothie.
I chose to buy it here because of certified organic.
I’d like to purchase it again ^^

They’re so sweet, he devours them.

Translated from Japanese: They were very tasty.
I’m concerned about the effects of the strong pesticides on my body, so I try to choose organic products as much as possible.
The price is not cheap, of course, but the peace of mind that comes with it is well worth the price.
I love eating them half-frozen, and I'm sure I'll order again during the summer.

Translated from Japanese: As the name suggests, they were very sweet cherries.
There was no acidity at all, so I mixed them with sour cherries and the blackcurrants which I had previously purchased and it was just right.
