The Bing Cherry is the highest produced cherry in the United States. Originating in the Pacific Northwest, it holds the distinguishing heart-like shape. They are very sweet with a strong aftertaste.
Look for a dark, deep, red color with a bright green stem. Stay away from fruits that seem mushy or discolored. Wrinkles don’t mean they are bad, rather that they have been at room temperature for some time.
To have the best Bing Cherries, keep them in the refrigerator whenever you’re not eating them, and make sure you wash them before eating. Try popping them in the freezer for a refreshing, frozen treat!
