Storing Fresh Cherries
From blossom to fruit, the cherry tree has
been celebrated since 300 BC. The Bing cherry
is perhaps the most regal variety, with its large,
plump fruit and sweet, juicy flesh. Not only do
cherries taste great, but they are also a rich
source of fiber and potassium.
Frank Padilla, Costco’s produce buyer,
suggests storing cherries in the refrigerator,
loosely covered. They will stay fresh for up to
3 days. They can also be bagged (stemmed and
pitted) and frozen for up to 3 months.
