So I went on an Epic Cherry Quest today, visiting every farm I could find with a cherry sign visible from the road, on the left side from Wädenswil down round the Obersee... and narry a cherry to be found. Every Hofladen I visited was sold out - and many for the season.

I left it too late.
Sounds like a road trip is in order. We still have cherries around here!

Hmm, I think Wiesendangen would be closer for her.
Dorfstr. 1, they must have started on the week-end and on their website they say, it will go on until beginning of August.

They got huge signes out now, you can't miss it. Fr. 5.00/500g, well worth it.

Re: First Swiss cherries of the season - yummy!

And we've set a new record for cherry consumption. Bought another 2kgs last Saturday so that will make 9kgs this season so far. Best before was 8kgs. Almost didn't find any though so that may be it for us this year. All our regular spots didn't have any, apart from one farm who did.

And why the crazy pricing? Cherries with stalks on 8 francs a kilo, those without 5 francs a kilo. Um, you get more cherries to the kilo without stalks folks.

LOL, I got through 5 kilos in 10 days ..... and I haven't finished yet as our farmers only just started to push them out.

They're pretty filling too, I don't eat much else lately
