Tasmania: the perfect place for cherry production

Tasmania’s reputation for growing excellent quality cherries can be largely attributed to the outstanding climatic conditions which are perfect for the production of tree fruit such as cherries and apples.

Over 30% of Tasmania is dedicated to National Parks or World Heritage areas and Tasmania has some of cleanest air and water in the world.

Tasmania is free from many pests and diseases that consequently allows Tasmania to export to several key export destinations without having to apply post harvest treatments.

Health Benefits

Dark cherries are one of nature’s true “superfruits” and are rich in bioactives such as anthocyanins and essential vitamins and minerals. Preliminary research on dark cherries indicates that they may have the capacity to improve the immune system, aid in the prevention of cancers, reduce the risk of diabetes and ease symptoms of arthritis and gout. Anthocyanins are also able to help slow aging and prevent degenerative disorders such as Alzheimer’s disease.

Ongoing research also demonstrates that cherries can play a role in sports recovery at the elite level.
