There's simply nothing like a Snowgoose Cherry Hamper Gift. A joy to give and heavenly to receive, our cherry gifts brim with finest premium cherries and a selection of artisan produce from leading small-batch producers.
There's a reason our cherry gift baskets are just so extraordinary. Our experienced growers leave Snowgoose Cherries to tree-ripen for two to three days longer than regular cherries. With indulgent extra time on the tree, they grow strikingly sweeter with an accompanying abundance of firm, lush and juicy flesh. We warmly invite you to browse our famous online cherry gift hamper range and discover the top way to treat everyone for any occasion.
Every year, John Antico AM oversees the packing of 2.5 million kilos of his delectable Australian cherries. So, it’s no surprise that when it comes to these festive fruit favourites, John knows which ones are the best.
Born on top of his parent’s fruit shop in the Sydney suburb of Mascot, John and his brothers Tony and Joe expanded the family business after their father retired in 1958. The brothers gave wings to fruit, pioneering the export of Australian fresh fruit by air with Qantas and were awarded the Australian Export Award for Outstanding Export Achievement from the Australian Trade Commission in 1986.
John is immensely proud to guarantee each exceptional cherry experience. Under his watchful eyes, we pluck perfect Snowgoose Cherries from the trees in the early morning and cool them to 4°C within one hour of harvesting. Lucky recipients devour Australia's largest, sweetest cherries at the peak of their flavour intensity, rushed to their doorsteps within just 48 hours of handpicking them from the trees.
The most amazing things happen to cherries during their final days of ripening. Firstly, they turn fully red and pack on their delicious, plump weight. When this happens, their sugar content dramatically rises to its peak sweetness.
That's why we choose to leave our cherries on the trees for two to three days longer than regular cherries. Supremely large with more flesh and flavour, they still retain the firmness that you can delightfully sink your teeth into. And because they amass more sugar content during these extra few days, your recipient's cherry gift hamper promises the most strikingly sweet cherry experience. How divine!
