The orchard

Since the 19th century, CHERRY ROCHER directly cultivates a vast orchard of 6,000 cherry trees of several varieties at the heart of the Ardèche region.

Our in-depth arboriculture experience is beneficial for selecting raw materials purchased from different production areas. This ensures the origin and quality of all our products.

An arboreal heritage to be at one with nature :

The blackcurrant shrub, which is part of the Saxifragaceae family, belongs to the Ribes botanical genus, just like red and white currants. It is also known as the black gooseberry. Its fruit is rich in vitamin C.

  • Blackcurrant shrub

Unlike red and white currants, the blackcurrant bears its fruit on new shoots instead of on old ones, which give the berries their dark violet, almost black colouring.

The berries, leaves and buds all have a very strong smell.   

The sweetest blackcurrants are produced in areas with continental climates and hot summers.

 

  • The fruit

In France, blackcurrant farming is widespread: the main production areas are the Loire Valley, the Rhône Valley, Burgundy and the Paris basin.          
Different varieties are grown; substantial research work has been carried out to enhance the characteristics of these varieties.           
The “Noir de Bourgogne”, which is grown extensively throughout the various production areas, is the most powerful and finest variety. Once macerated, it produces the best products.

Cherry Rocher makes its products every year with several hundred tons of blackcurrant, in particular the “Noir de Bourgogne” variety.
