Cherries at Blackmoor Estate

I have been observing the Orchards at Blackmoor Estate this year since just before they started to show signs of life in April.

There will be a collection of paintings to show later after the harvest of the other fruits.  Apples and pears and hedgerow yield have been fascinating and need attention! 

Blackmoor Estate Cherries are the most sumptuous cherries I have ever,seen  painted and eaten . Here are some works in progress. 

The red cherries are a variety called ‘Penny’ and the black cherries are ‘Kordia’ The flavour of both is delicious!
