Cherry Festivals

Who can say no to cherries? These scarlet beady fruits have pleased the palates of food lovers for centuries and June, the first month of summer, is the peak season for Cyprus cherries. Cherry trees grow on the Troodos Mountain slopes, where the climate is favorable for this juicy and healthy fruit. Two varieties are mainly cultivated on our island; the purple-black petrokeraza and the pinkish-white “French”.

We like to enjoy our cherries freshly picked from the tree; however, we also make Glyko Kerassi (a cherry spoon-sweet preserved in syrup) and cherry jam.

The villages of Kampos, Pedoulas, Platanistasa and Treis Elies, all nestled on Troodos Mountain range, celebrate cherries with annual festivals. All festivals feature a packed schedule of activities such as cooking demonstrations, children’s activities, live music and dancing, marketplaces with traditional products, workshops, walks along cherry orchards and much more.

Head to one of these four festivals, mingle with the locals and enjoy cherry moments.
