These small fruit can be red, black or yellow and white flushed with pink. There are sweet and sour varieties. Sweet cherries have soft juicy flesh., while the sour ones are acidic.

Use: The acidic ones are best used in cooking. Cherries can be cooked in a pie, used as a sauce for duck or chicken, or to make soup or ice-cream sauce. They can also be baked in a batter pudding or turned into jams or preserves. These fruits have more taste if cooked with their stones intact and tend to disintergrate if pips have been removed. The cooking time varies according to type and ripeness, but cherries will fall apart if cooked too rapidly at a high heat.
