Cherries

British

Cherries

  • High in melatonin
  • Great source of potassium, calcium, vitamin A and folic acid
  • Heart health

Did you know we have been eating cherries in the UK since the Middle Ages?  They are a quintessential part of our national diet and we have growers in the UK who have been farming cherries across the generations. Cherries are packed with health benefits including being especially high in polyphenols, a large group of plant chemicals that help fight cellular damage, reduce inflammation, and promote overall health.

Blueberries

British

Blueberries

  • FILLED with goodness.
  • One serving of blueberries provides as many health-promoting antioxidants as five servings of broccoli

Blueberry pie anyone?  Many people think blueberries are only grown in USA – think again, we’re blueberry people too! Our specially selected varieties are grown by British farmers from June to September.  Did you know, blueberries are naturally covered in a protective wax called a bloom which acts as a sunscreen and is a sign of freshness..?

Raspberries

Driscoll’s® Maravilla

Raspberries

  • Low in fat and high in fibre for a healthy digestion
  • Rich source of flavonoids quercetin and gallic acid
  • Improve your co-ordination, memory and mood

Driscoll’s® Maravilla Raspberries are plump, soft to touch and melt-in-the-mouth… just like a top-quality raspberry should!  Loved by the littles fingers (and soft enough for them to eat as a snack) and by more ‘mature’ hands we are the only people in the UK who grow this world-beating variety. With the perfect balance of natural sweetness and just the slightest hint of sour each and every raspberry is hand-selected by our dedicated pickers.   And they offer more than just great taste:

Strawberries

Scrumptious

Strawberries

  • Packed with vitamins C
  • High in phytonutrients and antioxidants
  • Great for a healthy heart

These little ruby red jewels are the soft, juicy, taste of summer for most of us, with scientists even proving that just the smell of these beautiful berries makes us feel happy! Our British farmers are a picky bunch and select only the very best varieties, so look for Driscoll’s® Zara Strawberries on-pack. They can add a vibrant look, sweet taste and all sorts of dribbly goodness to a smoothie, on porridge, as a snack, with cream (‘g-old school’!!), or if you’re feeling more adventurous in a salad, with mint or basil or as an alternative butter to nut-butter.

Blackberries

Driscoll’s® Victoria™

Blackberries

  • Packed full of vitamin C, K and and E
  • High antioxidant levels
  • Can be paired with strong flavours

Black is the new blue…Driscoll’s® Victoria™ Sweet Blackberries are big winners with the whole family for two key reasons: health & taste! From a HEALTH perspective they’re packed with fibre, Vitamin C, and low in calories, carbs and fat… literally good for every body. And when it comes to TASTE, their full-bodied sweeter flavour (completely different to small, thin, hedgerow berries) makes them both an ideal snack and a versatile addition to sweet or savoury dishes. Also a perfect addition to a cheeky cocktail!

    As the weather gets warmer and the days get longer, we feel ourselves longing for cold and refreshing drinks to keep us hydrated. This Driscoll’s® Victoria™ Sweet Blackberry and Driscoll’s® Zara Strawberry version is much healthier and lower in refined sugars than the bottled juice variety, and much tastier (in our opinion) Thanks to  @thechefsavvy  for this delicious recipe, and make sure to tag us in any of your re-creations!

    Look at how our Driscoll’s® Victoria™ Sweet Blackberries glisten!✨ Twice the size of other varieties, these delicious berries are juicier and sweeter than regular blackberries. Whilst they're perfect to snack on their own, why not venture outside the box and try adding them to savoury dishes?! With warmer weather on the horizon we like adding them to lunchtime salads for that extra refreshing kick! Get a berry that can do both - taste GREAT but also provide you with one of the highest antioxidant levels among fruit for a boosted immune system and healthy skin - result!
