When to Enjoy

The Sequoias burst with flavor in May.


  • Cherries like it cold! Get them into the refrigerator as soon as you get home.
  • Cherries with stems last longer than those with stems removed.
  • Rinse cherries under cold water when you’re ready to enjoy them (not earlier).
  • Cherries brought to room temperature will have better flavor than cold ones.
  • If you freeze cherries, be sure to pit them first.
