West Indian Cherry

Sourball sized and bright red, this fruit resembles its namesake grown in cold weather climates. Where it differs it that the West Indian Cherry, or Barbados Cherry, or Acerola Cherry (same fruit; different names) contains one of the largest doses of natural vitamin C of any fruit studied.

Calories in Fruit

Four of these gems provide a day’s worth of this cold-fighting nutrient, plus a moderate amount of iron and potassium. One cup serves up only 31 calories. Juice the cherries, dilute with water and add sugar. Or, put the cherry juice in a blender with sugar and several handfuls of crushed ice and blend until smooth. You can also make the juice into a sorbet.

Next… Pomegranate
