Why are cherries red?

2

The deep colour of tart red cherries is a clue to their health-promoting properties. They contain flavonoids called anthocyanins–naturally occurring pigment compounds that impart colour to fruit, vegetables, and plants. Flavonoids, which contain antioxidants, help to protect the plant from disease.

Cherries are not always red. Some are yellow, golden, or black. They are varying colors depending on the variety of the species.
