Buying Cherries

Look for: cherries that are clean, bright, shiny, and plump and without blemishes. Look for cherries with fresh, intact stems, which increases shelf life. Sweet cherries should be firm but not hard. Sour cherries should be medium-firm. The sweetest cherries are the darkest cherries.

Avoid: cherries with cuts, bruises, or dry stems.

Seasonality: Summer

Storing Cherries

Refrigerate cherries up to 10 days.

Preparing Cherries

Wash and remove stems just before eating.
