cherries!! where do you find fresh cherries?

Enquiring minds need to know!

Fresh cherries, coated perilously with deadly pesticides, imported from Chile. The Clementines are from Spain.

The only "fresh" fruit in Maine right now are locally grown hothouse tomatoes and Macintosh apples in cold storage. Everything else is an import from more exotic locales.

Pesticide cherries from Chile at $4.99 a pound from the local store-- ain't winter grand?

Cherries were here last week, but way over my budget. But Clementines have been very affordable - I have about 3 dozen in my fridge as we speak! I need to eat them faster, before they go bad on me and waste my budget!

Love cheery cherries. Are Clementines mandarins? Or do you call them tangerines? It's interesting how some fruits and vegies are called different things depending on what part of the world you come from. Either way - deelish!

Are clementines the little tangerines that are seedless? If so, we call them cuites. hee hee

Angry said...

I'm not sure but I think a clementine is a variety of mandarin with fewer seeds...

Hey Groovy, here's another good thing about Winter... I'm tagging you for a meme.
And if you think that's annoying, well you'll be glad to know that I'm almost done inventing my own meme, so I'll be back soon to tag you again.

I hate buying clementines by the crate. I'm the only fruit-eater in the house, and they always spoil before I can eat them all. Plus, the side-by-side refrigerator I foolishly selected when we built doesn't allow enough room for a crate of clementines. Or a pizza box. Never buy a side-by-side refrigerator/freezer, that's my advice.

When I lived in Germany, the vendors used to sell them singly, as God intended, I expect. They also set out free samples so you could be sure they were only selling plump juicy fruit, and they extolled their virtues in voices they probably used in the opera halls later that night. I'd always buy one or two to sustain me through my history lectures. Lovely things.

Cherries, though, I have yet to see around here. Even from Chile.
