Visitor reviews

    Had been reading about the old Tamar cherries and by amazing coincidence I tasted this variety at the National Fruit Collection in Kent, whilst on a visit. It is small and dark black, but incredibly sweet and juicy, with a richness and depth of flavour which I find lacking in many other cherries.
