Pale yellow cherries with thin green stems

These yellow sweet cherries were for sale at the Fair Food Farmstand in the Reading Terminal Market in Philadelphia. These cherries were grown by Green Meadow Farm in Gap, PA, a farm that practices integrated pest management. They were sold for $6.00 a quart.

I did not try these cherries, even though I often like trying new types of fruit that I have not sampled before. I tend to prefer darker colored fruit, both because I find it tends to be more flavorful, and because I have read that darker-colored fruits and vegetables tend to be more nutritious, higher in vitamins and antioxidants.
