ISO Information on cherries?

I love cherry flavor. I've never eaten fresh cherries and want to try them. I like 'em sweet!

Bing? Ranier? Others? Thanks!

Ranier cherries - those are the ones - the best!

Yes, as Licia says, Rainier for fresh sweet cherries.

If youre nuts about the cherry flavor, and want something alittle different, though it is preserved I recommend Marashino Cherries. These are normally preserved in a brine of some sort and they are typically used to top a sundae or to put in a drink. They are delightful in their own right as well.

I've heard that the Ranier are the best, too, but I've never had satisfaction with them. They are more expensive and not as sweet, to me. Personally, I like the Bing, but you have to get them really fresh.

And Maraschino cherries don't taste like cherries at all, but they are great on top of Sundaes and in cherry-vanilla Cokes.

I got some good Bing Cherries a couple of months ago. Now it seems that Ranier cherries are in season. I've been meaning to get some, but haven't done it yet.

I def. think they taste like cherries, albeit candied cherries.

Splurge and get some now, they are in season.
Get both Bing and Rainier!

And let a few of them sit for a while to get extra ripe.
They get soft and the flavor really intensifies!
Yum Yum

I am thinking of trying an over ripe cherry rub for steak....

Man, that sounds good! When I was a kid, one house we lived in in MI had a huge cherry tree in the backyard. I used to climb it all the time and pick and eat fresh cherries. I don't know what kind they were, though.

Definitely try some, Angie!

I buy whatever locally grown ones I can get at the Farmer's Market. They are normally picked the day before and are so incredibly fresh.

I have a cherry tree in my parent's backyard. I'm not sure on what kind it is, but the cherries are perfectly edible. I know it's not maraschino cherries. Maraschino cherries are perfect for topping on a nice sundae or any kind of dessert.
