Life is a bowl of (white) cherries

White cherries remind me of the crunchy white 'duroni' cherries I used to eat in Italy as a child. I guess that, like the red ones, the best ones that are grown in NZ are exported, as in the shops we only seem to get seconds, and need to spend quite a bit of time sorting them. In my memories life as a bowl of cherries meant that most were good and occasionally one was bad, but in the supermarkets here you can find boxes full of bad cherries, and occasionally a good one! How can this be possible? 

Pity, they make a great addition to the lunch boxes.

  1. Somehow the white ones do not look right. Thankfully we have two cherry trees, both red and both delicious. Take care Diane

    1. Maybe I am more used to them, I grew up eating many types of cherries, but yes, the red look better :-)

  2. look lovely dear, we have here at my yard red cherries but I try white cherries and are really delicious, the called corazón de paloma (dove hearts) what curious name didn't??

  3. I can't remember the last time I saw white cherries here! In fact I think it was overseas!

  4. Maybe they grow them there too and export them to Japan (like we do here....). This is why we can only buy seconds :-(
