Cherries are round-shaped fruits that range from a deep mahogany red color to a bright yellow with red blush. Their flesh tends to be firm with a sweet flavor. Did you know that Broadway in New York shifts west at East 10th Street because a cherry tree once stood there?

Cherries have many uses besides being eaten alone or as ice cream toppers. They can be enjoyed in a spinach salad, mixed in oatmeal, or blended in a delicious smoothie with yogurt and berries.

  • Good source of dietary fiber and vitamin C

Tips for Selection

  • Signs of good quality cherries are fruits that are large, glossy, plump, firm, and dark-colored for their variety.
  • Only select cherries that have been kept cool and moist since flavor and texture both decline at warm temperatures
  • Choose cherries that still have their stem intact; stems should be fresh and green
  • Check carefully for bruises or cuts and do not purchase cherries that are sticky from juice leakage
