How to Care for Your Cherries

  • Cherries are picked ripe and sweet from the tree
  • Keep the cherries cool to keep them fresh for longer.So put that bowl full of cherries in the fridge!
  • Store dry and loosely packed in a covered container in the fridge until needed.(0-4°C is great)
  • Leave the stems on – they help keep the cherries fresh.
