Barbados @ 50 - West Indian Cherry

>> Monday 7 November 2016

All over the English-speaking Caribbean you can find these tart and sweet cherries. In order to be inclusive, we refer to them them as West Indian cherries but researchers who encountered the fruit first in Barbados branded it as Barbados Cherry. Therefore, do not get confused when in search of these cherries, ask for Barbados cherry, West Indian cherry Garden cherry or Native cherry. There are French, Spanish, Portuguese and Dutch names for this fruit too.

Packed with Vitamin C, and rich with antioxdiants, this fruit, if consumed whole is also a good source of fiber.
