Similar to berries, store unwashed cherries in the refrigerator in a sealed container lined with paper towel.

Unlike other stone fruits (those with hard pits), cherries do not continue to ripen once picked. This means that, unless you plan to eat all  your cherries once you get them home, they should be carefully stored to prolong flavor and shelf-life.

Keep cherries dry by lining the bottom of the sealed container or bag with paper towel and don't wash until ready to eat. Properly stored, cherries can last up to 10 days in the fridge.
