Cherries, red cherries! As kids we sang :” Red cherries I like to eat, and I like to go to school, too”-a funny rhyme I still like to remember, although it really is strange to me how school and red cherries came together in a verse! For even kids know, that when cherries are ripe school is about to end soon and summer holidays are to begin for the next two months. Who would know.. 

Cherries, red cherries ! It was a hot market day and cherries were about to end, there were not many vendors of this sweet fruit as spring has been too wet this year.Who would then blame such a high price for a kilo of cherries, red cherries.I took a kilo of them, to bring them home, remembering the rhyme:”Red cherries I like to eat…………….

Giresun (pronounced [ɡiɾeˈsun]TurkishGiresunAncient Greek: Pharnacia, Choerades) is the provincial capital of Giresun Province in the Black Sea Region of northeastern Turkey

The English word cherry, French cerise, Spanish cereza, and Southern Italian dialectcerasa (standard Italian ciliegia) all come from Classical Greek κερασός “cherry tree”, which has been identified with Cerasus. The cherry was first exported to Europe from Cerasus in Roman times, according to Pliny by Lucullus. from:http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Giresun
