Mutant "twin" black cherries

PinotPlease | Jun 4, 2007 07:13 PM

Does anyone know what the deal is with the abundance of mutant cherries on the market in L.A.? I ate cherries for years back east and never saw this breed that I can only call mutant. A regular cherry with a shrivled up teardrop sized growth on one side, almost like an unformed twin. The first time I saw it was when I bought cherries a couple times from the freeway overpass fruit seller guys, I thought maybe they get the also-ran grade B cherries and that's why they're so cheap. However I just got another gang of them from WholeFoods, with the WholePriceTag.

Anyone got the 4-1-1?

Thanks
