SELECTION INFORMATION
Usage

Selection

Good-quality Bing cherries will be large, firm and have even deep-red coloring. They should taste sweet and tangy.

Look for stems that are green and fresh looking without browning or shriveling.

Avoid

Avoid cherries that are soft, have wrinkled skin, are leaking and sticky or that have any visible signs of decay.

Stems that are brown and shriveled indicate product that has been off the tree for too long.

Storage

Place unwashed cherries in a plastic bag and store in a refrigerator. When you pull cherries from the refrigerator to eat, wash them and let them sit until they come to room temperature to bring out their full flavor.

Fresh cherries can be frozen to extend their storage time, but they will only be good for baking & juicing once frozen. Just remember to remove the pit first or else your cherries will be infused with an almond-like flavor.

Ripening

Immature cherries will be smaller and less juicy while over-mature product will be soft, dull and wrinkled.
