Bajan Cherry

Tired of drinking processed Orange Juice for breakfast. Well, what if I told you, to switch your breakfast juice to a more Caribbean or Bajan flavor and still get more Vitamin C than your regular OJ. Here it is! The Barbados Cherry, also known as West Indies Cherry, it is a dark red berry that grows on a shrub tree. Though is can taste tart or sourish it contains the highest concentration of vitamin C and is very rich in antioxidants.

Benefits of Bajan Cherry

  • Very low in calories

  • Reduce aging

  • 1 cup contains 1,700 mg vitamin c

  • Treat liver problems

  • Boost immune system

  • Reduce inflammation

  • Brain booster, protects against memory loss

  • Used as an astringent

Where To Get Bajan Cherry

You can get Bajan cherry in any subtropical environment. They are popular in the Caribbean as they enjoy sunny areas and don’t do well in the cold. If you want to grow a Bajan Cherry Tree you need to live in a warm climate and plant in clean soil. Bajan Cherry Trees can grow really tall so you need to remember to prune the trees or it can get out of control.

Ways to Use Bajan Cherry

There are multiple ways in which you can use Bajan Cherry. You can eat it raw, or use it to make jams, jellies, and juices. My favorite method is making juice with it and drinking it in the morning. Because of the tart-like taste, I usually add other ingredients to counteract the taste like lime, guava, or ginger.
