I absolutely LOVE cherries! I literally eat cherries every day of the season when they are available. (Domestic cherries, not the Chilean imports that are available in the winter/early spring.) The one drawback is that they are a little more expensive than other fruits. But to me it's worth it! It's shaping up to be a great year for cherries from the Northwest, so some of you might see some nice low prices depending on where you live.
My boyfriend's mom also has a cherry tree in her yard. They are the tart cherries but they are also very delicious too!
Cherries are full of nutrients, and not super high in calories - only about 75 calories per cup.
