Always my late mother bought cherries for Christmas thus it was and is cherry season. When mum passed on I didn't concern myself with cherries at Christmas time, my dad did it wasn't always convenient for me to get cherries from "The Cherry Shed" near where dad lived, but did once in awhile when he was alive.
It's just a large tin shed that has a cafe attached where the cherries are sold from December to the end of the season.
The last few years having really fancied cherries my husband and I called often in the season to buy cherries - this year the owners of the farm have lost 2/3rd of their crop due to the weather in spring, plus there are no cherries at the moment.
Today we bought some cherries at a fruit shop just down the hill from home - 24.99AUD a kilogram.
They got their cherries from Melbourne, Victoria. The cows got into the local crop and ate them all :)
