Chinatown fruit seasonality (cherries... in the winter??)

jen223 | Jan 9, 201202:27 PM

i bought cherries while in chinatown this weekend and was surprised to see that cherries were on every corner and at good prices! AND they're sweet! i always thought cherries were a summer fruit so am curious why they are all over chinatown.

this led me to a larger question on where all the fruit comes from. is it shipped in from asia? if that's the case, south asia is certainly temperate enough to produce cherries, but i don't think i've ever seen a cherry while i was there. is it coming from california? central/south america? anyone have any insight??
