    Make them now, chocolate covered cherries have a long shelf life, at
    least a year, unless you can't resist eating them.

    I use real fresh Bing cherries, not those marachino things! And I've
    noticed how they are affected by age. Never had one go bad on me, but
    I know that the cherry inside is plumper and jucier only a week or two
    after being made. Longer than that and the cherry gets more of it's
    juice sucked out by the sugar in the fondant wrapping I use. Still
    delicious, just not optimal IMHO.

    Those marachino abominations would survive a nuclear explosion! They
    are hardly edible or biodegradable!!

    You mean picked? Corn is best eaten asap after it's been picked.

    Cherries, like corn and asparagus, should be eaten ASAP after being
    picked. Sour cherries start to deteriorate within hours of picking and
    are downright rotten after two days. Sweet cherries have a longer shelf
    life, but the flavour goes downhill. Peaches right off the tree are
    incredible, not at all like the under ripe fruit so that is ripens after
    delivery thousands of miles away.

    Suppose the corn was sick. Should the government pay for a cherry
    doctor to treat it?

    The harvest may be over, but the fruits are still available in stores.

    Actually I'm not too fond of fresh fruit coated with chocolate, I
    never tried fresh cherries but I abhor fresh strawberries dipped in
    chocolate... a waste of chocolate and a waste of berries... I'm
    positive it'd be the same with fresh cherries. If they are that good
    they can't be improved upon, I'd eat those fresh cherries au natural.
    However I love chocolate coated dried/glace fruit. Chocolate covered
    glace orange peel is wonderful. I like raisinetts too. I loved
    Barton's Bonbonniere dark chocolate stem cherries, but alas I don't
    think they're made anymore.

    Be sure to consult your cherry doctor before buying them though.

    They are a bit weird (odd) tasting to me. Try the Goobers. I love them.

    Farmer's markets don't have cherry trees... cherry season is long over
    in the US, those were very likely fresh picked somewhere in South
    America, probably Peru, Chile, or Argentina.

    We're still getting them (from the PNW?) but they are no longer on sale
    or as widely available.

    He says cherry, you say corn. Is it too late to call the whole thing
    off?

    The problem I've always had with fresh strawberries dipped in
    chocolate is the strawberry dissolves immediately in your mouth as
    it's eaten releasing the wonderful strawberry flavors immediately but
    chocolate requires warming in your mouth before the chocolate flavors
    are released. So I found the best way to mix strawberry and chocolate
    is to first put a piece of chocolate in my mouth to warm it, then as
    the warmed chocolate is almost ready to chew up and enjoy put a
    strawberry in my mouch too and chew both together and both flavors are
    released together! YUM! :-)

    I did NOT say "fresh picked". I said "fresh" meaning not candied,
    "marachinoed" or otherwide adultered.
