A bit! Our Aldi had them for .89 centimes a 100g so under 9 francs a kilo. You need to go and find yourself a cherry farm somewhere mate.

Hubby picked up another couple of kilos today. You'll like this - price was 4 francs a kilo for cherries without the stems on, 6.50 with stems. Needless to say he got the stemlesss ones.

All the ones we've had so far have been delicious and certainly not inferior to previous years.

Re: First Swiss cherries of the season - yummy!

It's that time of year again. OH picked up our first sampling of cherries this year from a stall in Aarberg today. Will be trying them later, but they look lovely. 8 francs for a kilo.

Shows how late the season is this year. My first cherry post last year was on the 6th June and here we are 25th!

Re: First Swiss cherries of the season - yummy!

Um, not too bad. Not quite as much flavour, but still more bright red than dark red so maybe a little more ripening will do the trick.

Re: First Swiss cherries of the season - yummy!

I got my gift of cherries from my orchard-owning neighbour today, delicious! Only 2 days later than last year according to my insta ) I have eaten almost one third of the box already!

We got some at the Migros in Brügg Port, Bienne today - 5.90 for a kilo! Haven't been that low in price for a long time.

Re: First Swiss cherries of the season - yummy!

Well, don't know about anyone else, but our consumption was down a lot this year. We usually have 7-8 kilos; this year I think it was only 4.5. And none from one of our usual farms. Don't know if it was just because when we passed it it was lunchtime, but we never saw the table outside ready to have punnets put out which is usually there even if they're not selling at that particular point in time.

Re: First Swiss cherries of the season - yummy!

A couple weeks ago our local paper reported that the Ausserschwyz area cherry harvest was way down this year. If fact, some farms had no cherries at all.

I only discovered Seebenhof (post above) because I had to go looking further afield when my usual cherry farms had nothing to sell.

I was only able to make 4 jars of cherry jam this year. To be doled out like gold dust.

Let's hope for a better harvest in 2017.

Re: First Swiss cherries of the season - yummy!

Indeed Meloncollie. What worries me is that having had a mild winter, a soggy spring and mostly soggy summer, winter will hit us early and hard.

Re: First Swiss cherries of the season - yummy!

Bought our first couple of kilos of Swiss cherries today. Haven't had any yet, but they look lovely. I was surprised to see any on sale as most of the cherry trees around here are still all green berries so nowhere near ripe.

Well, I stole one last week in Migros and it was so sour that I did not buy them.
So after you did all the admiring their shape and color maybe you should try them and post again

Re: First Swiss cherries of the season - yummy!

Juat did, and they're very nice. Certainly not sour.

Maybe because the supermarket ones were picked too early to get them into the shops. We bought direct from the supplier again.

Re: First Swiss cherries of the season - yummy!

Is it that time of year again when I've got to pop a Swiss cherry? I don't do it for myself (I'm not getting any younger), but for the greater good...

Re: First Swiss cherries of the season - yummy!

Oh good! I was really concerned that the hard frost we had killed off most of the cherries this year.

Looks like I will need to so some roadside market exploring

Re: First Swiss cherries of the season - yummy!

Well doesn't look too bad around here DantesDame - Seeland and environs. We picked ours up just outside Aarberg, there were a couple of places selling them around there, but that was all we saw today. As said, most of the trees around here still have green berries. I only saw one tree with red ones - again not too far from Aarberg - but other trees nearby were still green berries. Guess it also depends on the type of cherry being grown.

Re: First Swiss cherries of the season - yummy!

At Piscopo´s shop I saw a 250g box of cherries or €10, right next to a bundle of asparagus for 1€ a stick.
Enjoy your fresh cherries by the handful.
