This product has now received JAS (Japanese Agricultural Standards) organic certification. The product has been produced in accordance with organic standards for a while, so rest assured there is no change in the content of the product, but it is now recognized as such by Japan's high standards.

One full bag of 1kg (2.2lbs) certified organic, naturally farmed, and fresh frozen sour cherries from the pristine mountainous region of Turkey. No use of chemical fertilizers and pesticides. GMO-free. Hand-picked, pitted, and individually flash-frozen (IQF) for freshness.

These cherries may have a higher content of tartness, hence their sour taste, but they still have a fair amount of sweetness to them. They are perfect for people who like a balance between sweet and sour and are not into overly sweet fruits.

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?

✔ Free of harmful synthetic chemical inputs such as fertilizer, pesticides, antibiotics, food additives, irradiation, and the use of sewage sludge.

✔ Free of genetically modified seeds (non-GMO).

✔ The farmland and soil in use have at least been 3 years free of any chemical treatment before the harvest has been certified as organic.

✔ Organic certifications come with multiple audits or on-site visits a year. Organic producers are rigidly checked and inspected by governmental bodies or certified third parties. 

✔ Organic farming prohibits the use of harmful pesticides and enhances biodiversity and results in better soil quality and healthier earth.

✔ Organic vegetables and fruits are produced mostly by family-owned farms that own smaller acres of organic land. Organic farming is more profitable for farmers and gives them a fair chance to live a sustainable life and support their local communities.

It is also important to mention that 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 end consumers.

Customer Reviews

Based on 14 reviews

Translated from Japanese: I bought 3 kinds of fruits this time, and they were all delicious and I put them in yogurt or ice cream.
I’m very happy I was able to buy them on sale this time.
Now that I'm retired from work, I'm at home and I'm addicted to making desserts, so fruits are very useful for rare cheese cakes.
I’d like to purchase them again if I have the opportunity.

They’re delicious and irresistible

Translated from Japanese: Anyway, they’re delicious. I used to make smoothies with blueberries and other berries, but these alone are so delicious that I eat them only with yogurt as a snack.

The product is satisfying

Translated from Japanese: Whenever I order it arrives the next day, so I always try to leave some space in the freezer with that intention (laugh).
I've ordered several types of frozen fruits, but this is my favorite. This time, I’m satisfied that I can buy it in bulk and get a good deal at the same time.
However, since it’s a frozen product, I don't like keeping it at room temperature when I order it, so Yamato Transport often comes early even though I have specified the time of delivery each time. ...As a result, my order arrived in a half-thawed state multiple times. The cardboard was also damp and soft, and the gum tape was about to come off.
I'm more worried about the coming summer, so I think it's better to have it shipped the day before, even if you don't specify the time.

Sour is good

Translated from Japanese: They’re a little sour, but well-balanced and I mix them for breakfast with sweet strawberries, dark cherries and ricotta cheese.
If you take out the amount you want to eat the night before and put it in a container, it will melt by the morning.
Maybe it's better to thaw in the refrigerator in the coming season?
When making sweets using cream, I think these are more sour than dark cherry.

フリードリック ダ.

I add these to my post-workout smoothie. Great taste and contributes to a quick recovery. I'll be ordering many times in the future.
