On Cherries

As I was walking home, I saw that the vendor was selling cherries in loose. Usually the supermarket sells it in pre packed boxes and it is quite expensive. The only cherries I have had were those sugar soaked sour ones found on top of cakes and I never liked them. I was curious to try fresh cherries. The cherries were great and I was pleasantly surprised by their sweet taste.


I realized that I have never had fresh cherries all my life until last week ha ha.

Are there any fruits you have never tried or tried only recently?

  1. Yep, had the same experience. Tasted cherries when I came to HK, loved them, my mum even takes them back to India with her (apparently they’re good for those with heart conditions).

  2. I saw and ate fresh cherries for the first time when I visited USA in 2009. It’s just awesome. I gorged on them the rest of my stay. Another of my favorites is persimmon that I had for the first time when I visited Malaysia. Sad I don’t get any of these where I stay.

  3. Ha ha, I can relate to this! In Nepal when growing up, cherries were those things found on top of cakes.. I hated them too! But the fresh cherries, which I tried many, many years later after the experiences with those birthday cherries from Nepal, here in Poland were much better! 🙂 I tried cocoa fruit last year in Sri Lanka. It was okay, not a big fan of it but it was just okay.
