Cherries were first cultivated in China around 300 BC, making them one of the the oldest fruits to be domestically produced. Dried cherries are loaded with anthocyanins, an antioxidant found in dark colored fruits. Today, the United States is the world's leading producer of cherries, and most varieties are still picked by hand as they were hundreds of years ago! Research suggests that Cherries may help fight fat! Wouldn't it be nice to try a fruit that may help blast away your fat?
