Cherries are a type of drupe (stone fruit) such as peaches, apricots, and plums. Bings are a type of sweet cherry that are commonly cultivated for their delicious flavor and attractive appearance. These fruits have a dark red exterior with a ruby red center with an exceptionally sweet, fruity, and richly fragrant berry-like flavor. Although cherries are not true berries, they are commonly grouped together with other berry-like fruits such as strawberries, blueberries, and raspberries due to their rich red berry flavor. Bing cherries are one of the sweetest varieties of stone fruit.
Uses: Eat these fruits raw for their exceptional flavor. Bing cherries pair exceptionally well with red wines, savory cheeses, and charcuterie.
