Cherries

They’re great on ice cream sundaes and all kinds of other foods. WBZ-TV’s Fresh Grocer Tony Tantillo shows us how to find the perfect cherries.

A ripe cherry is heavy for its size, meaning it has plenty of juice, and is meatier and sweeter than an immature cherry.

Watch The Fresh Grocer

Tart cherries should be firm, plump, and bright scarlet in color.

All fresh cherries should still have their stems attached and be clean and dry.

Avoid cherries that are hard, small, and/or lighter in color because they were probably picked before they were ripe.

Also avoid soft, or sticky fruit with a dull cast and shriveled skin since they are probably overripe.
