The picked cherries is then sorted before it is dried on the African raised beds for 3 to 4 weeks. During this process, the cherry is turned every 2 hours to ensure it is being dried evenly. Upon reaching its optimum moisture level, the dried cherry is packed in a bag and rested in a ventilated room before it is hulled after 3 weeks of resting.
