We've had some amazing Santini tomatoes (like cherry tomatoes) grown on the Isle of Wight, Seedless black grapes from Brazil, black figs from Turkey, persimmons from Israel and Pink Lady apples from Spain.
However I could not bring myself to buy the cherries. Yes, they have fresh cherries in November. But it'll cost ya pal.
Let's do some math. Ok, 1 kilogram equals 2.2046 pounds, and each pound is 0.4536 kg. 1 euro is 1.33 USD at today's exchange rate. At €25.50 per kilo, that means $33.96 per kilo. Thus, $33.96 * 0.4536 is $15.40 per pound. Hello daddy, hello mom. I'm your... Ch ch ch Cherry Bomb!
