Rainer cherries seem a little more juicy and have a bit of a different taste--not quite as sweet as Bings--Rainer are my favorites. That being said, I've eat a ton of bings this year too, which are best when firm and plump. MMMM.

Hi. Just FYI, maraschino cherries are preserved, sweetened cherries; they don't grow on trees as maraschino. They are "typically made from light-colored sweet cherries such as the Royal Ann, Rainier, or Gold varieties," according to Wikipedia: Maraschino cherry/ - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

I have a Stella cherry stick, um I mean tree, in my backyard but Perth is a little warm for them. It has been blooming this past week. I am toying with sticking a few on to the branches so it gets the idea of what it is meant to be doing! Just bought a handful of the season's first crop. Still a tad tart but at A$35.99/kg, I didn't get many. Just enough to say I have had some! My aunt lives in Manjimup in our States south west, and cherry trees just flourish. She brings them up by the tray load for all of her sisters. I love black cherry jam.

Too many restaurants, not enough time...
