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.
