Cherry Of The Week

A Sweet Stephany cherry, grown in an experimental cherry garden in Runco di Portomaggiore, a collaboration between the University of Bologna and Salvi Vivai, has just been crowned the world’s heaviest cherry. Part of their June 2020 it stood out from its peers. When put on the scales, Stefano Tartarini found that it weighed a whopping 0.93 ounces.

Rather like British exporters to the EU, the team had a mountain of paperwork to complete quickly to register it with Guinness World Record as the cherry was not expected to have a long shelf-life. It was the culmination of 10 years of work and, according to Tartarini, showed the relevance of their work.

I suppose it does if you like your cherries big.
