Cherries

In Season: A summer fruit Sweet cherries are available in several different varieties and have been enjoyed for centuries. Although they take their name from Cerasus, a city in ancient Turkey where they were first cultivated, archeologists have found cherry pits in Stone Age caves throughout Europe. Look for cherries that are plump with firm, smooth, and brightly colored skins and green stems attached. Cherries do not ripen further after being harvested, so if you have your own tree, be sure to wait until the fruit reaches maturity. For more information, please visit:
