What are Black Cherries?
This variety of cherry is darker in color, sometimes almost purple or black, and has a unique sour-sweet flavor. Black cherries are often used instead of sweet cherries to achieve a sharper taste. They are commonly used for making jams and pies, and are a very popular flavoring for both sodas and ice cream.
