Succulent sweet cherries are only available during the late spring and early summer, so make sure to enjoy your fill. Sweet cherries are high in fiber
and potassium, while remaining low in calories―just 1 cup of sweet cherries is about 100 calories. The intense color of cherries
is due partly to their anthocyanin content. Anthocyanins are a type of plant chemical (phytochemical) that are believed to
be high in antioxidant activity. The best cherries are large (an inch or more in diameter), plump, firm, and rich in color
and are equally delicious as a snack or dessert.
