The Ultimate Cherry
To grow the ultimate cherry, the seasonal changes play a very important part. We go from extremely hot and dry summers where the lands are scorched, to harsh, cold winters where the surrounding mountains get laden with snow.
Our operation currently has around 20HA of cherries planted, where 11 different varieties play seperate roles in delivering exactly what our clients require. The cherries grown at Jakimm get marketed under different labels.
"Jakimm Naturally Pure Cherries", where it all began.
"Timeness Distinction", the highest quality and largest fruit for export.
"Heartland & Ritchies Gully", our affordable quality line, all of which get picked and packed by our valued staff over the December/January periods each year.
