Cherry Time

Cherries, 1879

Cherry-themed window (2) at Lisa Perry on Madison Ave. features the Jeff Koons collection.

This chart and explanation about cherry sizing appears on the site of Stemilt Growers .
Row is the industry measurement used when sizing cherries. This term dates back to when cherry shippers packed the top layer of a box of cherries in neat rows. The number of cherries that fit in each row determined the size the cherries. For instance, if 10 cherries fit in a row, those cherries would be called 10 row.
Cherries continue to be classified in row sizes today. However, they are no longer placed in rows, but rather automatically sized during packing.As a guide, the smaller the row number, the larger the cherry will be. 

Well, if you absolutely must have your cherries in rows (and we know who you are), you can visit C.J. Olson Cherries.
