This year our greenhouse has been a huge success, especially in the fruit department. Our cherries have grown fantastically; so big that we thought we should see what the record for cherry size is.
One of three cherry trees in our greenhouse.
Picked from the tree in the morning, and on the table at lunch...could they come much fresher?
These cherries have very small stones. Almost the whole thing is flesh.
Guinness World Records give the heaviest cherry in the world as 21.69 g (0.76 oz). The record was set in 2003 in Italy. Br. Jean Marie, F.SS.R. places the contender on the scale. He has done much of the work in the greenhouse.
Look at that! Without even trying we have a cherry weighing in at 19 g (0.67 oz), just 2.69 g off the world record! Could these be the heaviest cherries in Scotland?
The average weight for this years cherries has been 16g (0.56 oz).
Behold the birds of the air, for they neither sow, nor do they reap, nor gather into barns: and your heavenly Father feedeth them. Are not you of much more value than they? - Matthew 6:26
Thanks be to God for the wonderful gifts he has provided us with!
