Not only are cherries a tasty snack but they are loaded with nutrition and health benefits. Sure you may have to spit the pits out, but for a nice cool summer snack, they are are hard to beat! Make sure to pick some up during the summer months as they are only in season for three months (May-July)! So here are just some of the benefits of the tasty burgundy fruit!
Keep in mind that there are primarily two different types of cherries. Sweet (Bing cherries) and tart(sour). Most cherry juices are made out of tart cherries, whereas desserts are made with sweet cherries. Both contain many nutritional benefits, however, tart is preferred when all nutritional and health benefits are compared. So next time you are in the fresh food section, pick the cherries and enjoy!
