New Zealand cherries are available in December and January.
Store in the refrigerator. Handle all fresh produce with care and wash before eating.
Sweet cherries date from prehistoric times in Asia. The trees made it across the ocean as far as Britain by the first century A.D. It was not until the 15th century, however, that cherries became popular in Germany, France and England.
