SCOTTISH produce business Scotty Brand has added Scottish cherries to its seasonal berries range for the first time.

It has secured a listing with Asda, which will see the fruit stocked in stores across Scotland. Renowned for its seasonal Scottish strawberries and raspberries, Scotty Brand has added cherries to its range following a rise in home-grown production and good growing conditions.

More than 25,000 packs of Scottish cherries have been grown for Scotty Brand by Peter Marshall & Co at West Jordanstone Farm and Muirton Farm, close to Alyth, Perthshire.

Run by husband and wife Rowan and Jennifer Marshall, the farm has been in the family for four generations. The firm is one of the longest established commercial cherry growers in Scotland.
