At Yarra Valley Cherries, we grow over 30 varieties that ripen across the season, ensuring there is always premium cherries available for you to enjoy. Each variety may look slightly different, with different colours and flavour profiles but all benefit us in terms of nutrients and vitamins. Being low in calories, you can also enjoy more of them and obtain the following benefits:

1. Multi-vitamin Dose

Cherries are a good source of vitamins A, B, C and E which all help to keep the skin radiant and healthy.

2. Anti-Ageing Properties

With high levels of anti-oxidants, cherries can help slow down the aging process by fighting free radicals in the body which makes skin look older.

3. Beauty Sleep

Cherries contain melatonin, which helps to regulate sleeping patterns. A good nights sleep is crucial to maintaining skin and overall health.

4. Hair and Scalp Hydration

Vitamin A in cherries help to keep hair and scalp hydrated which regulates the production of an essential acid called Retinoic aid, which is important for hair follicles to grow properly.

5. Hair Growth

Vitamin B in cherries help regeneration of existing cells and triggers hair growth.

6. Hair Strengthening

Vitamin C in cherries helps strengthen hair follicles and prevent breakage from the roots. Hair also gets nourished and is less likely to split.
