From Our Family To Yours


At the DJ Forry Company we work hard to bring the best California Cherries from the San Joaquin and Santa Clara Valleys to you. That’s why DJ Forry works with farming partners that share our passion to offer only the best. Our network of family farmers utilize the latest, most up to date farming and harvesting methods to ensure only the best and safest cherries reach your table.

Choosing Quality Cherries is Easy. First, look for our new Forry’s Finest stand up bag. Then, look for plump deep red cherries that feel firm to the touch…avoid those that are wrinkled. Bright green stems are a plus but don’t really indicate freshness.

Cherries are loaded with vitamin C and are high in fiber. Cherries also provide nutrients like boron for bone health and quercetin for heart health.


Care and Handling (click open/close)

Keep your cherries refrigerated when possible. Cherries will last longer when kept chilled. For the best results, we recommend that you store cherries in their original container, and refrain from rinsing until ready to use. Always remember that like grapes, cherries will absorb refrigerator odors, so keep containers closed.

Super Nutrition in a Sweet Package

Sweet Cherries are packed full of vitamins like vitamin C, and minerals like iron, potassium, and dietary fiber. Plus cherries are low in calories, fat and sodium free.

For What Ails You

Cherries are known as pigment rich fruits; these pigments are made up of polyphenolic flavonids known as anthocyanin glycosides. Anthocyanins are known to have powerful anti-oxidant properties. Anthocyanins in cherries have been found to act like anti-inflammation agents. Frequent cherry consumption has the potential to provide health benefits against episodes of gout and arthritis.

To Help Protect You

  • Heart Health: Cherries contain a flavonoid called quercetin which research has found to aid in the prevention of heart disease. Cherries are considered a good source of quercetin.
  • Bone Health: Cherries are an excellent source of Boron. Boron when consumed with calcium and magnesium may increase bone health.

Passion

Passion is hard to define, but you know it when you see it. We believe every great tasting piece of fruit starts with a grower that has a passion for growing great fruit. Passion shows in the way they cultivate the land and in the way they harvest and handle their fruit to ensure you and your family enjoy every piece.

Innovation

From Passion flows Innovation. Beyond the time honored growing practices that define a grower of consistently great produce, what new ideas might yield better tasting, better for you fruit? Our farming partners are always asking, "What if?"

Safety

All of our farming partners believe that safe to eat produce is the best produce. Our partners follow strict protocols through adhering to Good Agricultural Practices (GAP’s), 3rd party safety audits, and Produce Industry Traceability Initiatives (PTI’s) to ensure that we know where every piece of fruit we sell comes from.
