Sometime ago I posted pictures of strawberries I mentioned how some fruits that used to be very uncommon in India are not so any more. Cherries are one of them. As a kid I don't remember cherries being sold. They are now more common than before but still “exotic” enough to be sold in boxes instead of being piled up like other fruit. One problem with this that a lot of time you end up buying a box of strawberries or cherries that has paper stuffed in the bottom to give the illusion of a greater quantity. It happens specially if you buy them from traffic signals.
