I am a huge cherry fan; as a matter of fact, if you ever want to get on my good side, cherry pie is the way to go.
So here are some cherry fun facts. ENJOY!
*The same chemicals that give tart cherries their color may relieve pain better than aspirin and ibuprofen.
*Eating @20 tart cherries a day could reduce inflammatory pain and headache pain.
*There are @7000 cherries on an average tart cherry tree. It takes @250 cherries to make 1 cherry pie, so each tree could produce enough cherries for 28 pies.
*Today, in Michigan, there are almost 4 million cherry trees which annually produce 150 to 200 pounds of tart cherries.
