Have I told you I love cherries? I love most stone fruit, but cherries are my favourites. Huge, firm, dark, sweet. Yum!
Christmas has always been my favourite season for fruit, here in Australia it's stone fruit season.
At the moment I can get imported cherries from the USA for under $10/kilo. They are lovely (earlier cherries were nearly $20/kilo and in terrible condition, I'm surprised the supermarket sold any of them), now the condition is excellent and they are inexpensive.
So, to all the cherry growers in the USA who export to Australia, I'd just like to say thanks so much! (I can't thank any grower specifically as I couldn't see the box to findout where the cherries were from.)
Look at these beauties (above) found here on the web... Reading what they've said on their site Michigan has had bad cherry weather and their sweet dark cherry crop hasn't been good as usual.
Food miles. Cherries from the US to Australia.
Gotta love them!
