Skælskør Cherries are ruby red, juicy and sweet cherries that tastes like summer. We have specialized in growing tasty and excellent cherries near the sunny town of Skælskør. Our orchard, the biggest in Denmark, is situated in this unique area. Skælskør Cherries, a part of Danfrugt Skælskør Ltd., belongs in the South-West of Zealand near the Great Belt coast that gives us the best conditions for growing tasty and juicy fruit.
The Great Belt climate is unique due to the many sunny hours in Skælskør. At the same time, the rain and wind is more mild that in most other areas in Denmark. The fertile soil combined with the many sunny hours makes it optimal to grow cherries in this area, because our cherries have more time to grow sweet and ripe – this shows in every single cherry. For many years, we also produce apples, pears and plums at our great 250-hectare orchard.
We are proud to deliver tasty and delicious cherries to the stores every day during the season. Not only are the cherries grown at an exceptional location – after they have been carefully picked, they are also gently transported to the end-consumer. We discard the cherries that do not live up to our high standards. Skælskør Kirsebær can be bought at the following Danish stores: Meny, Føtex, Netto, Rema 1000, Spar, Lidl and Aldi.
Our cherries can be used in many recipes or as a simple serving. Use the cherries with a sweet and intense flavor in a layer cake or as a lovely summer snack.
