The name translates simply to Sour Cherry and Máté, the maker of Pennonis inks, chose it because they had a huge sour cherry tree in the garden during his childhood. He always liked how beautiful the tree was when it was full of fruit, the colors ranging from vivid red all the way to an almost complete black. He and his cousins used to hang the cherries on their ears and wore them as earrings. Ironically, he never liked the taste of sour cherries.
