In my opinion cherries are at their very best July to August and if like me you are lucky enough to have a tree near you, then get picking ASAP!
If however you are not so lucky then there are other ways to get you hands on these delicious little treats. They are of course widely available in the supermarkets but you will have to pay a premium, so if you have the time why not check out your local PYO (pick your own) or farmers market where the prices will be far more reasonable and can also make a nice day out.
I have recently discovered that if you are real cherry nut like me there are farms that will actually rent you a cherry tree for a year, yes this is a real thing! When the tree is ripe you can go along and pick it clean. However to my dismay I have also discovered that this is not a new craze and if you want to rent a tree you have to be quick as availability is limited.
