Red sour cherries have been a dessert item for Americans since long before George Washington chopped down the cherry tree. In the past twenty years production of sour cherries has increased at a faster rate than population. Since 1938 population of the United States has increased approximately 43 million, a 25 percent increase, whereas sour cherry production has increased approximately 78 million pounds, a 38 percent increase. This trend is expected to continue in the future, in fact, according to a Michigan survey the production of sour cherries in relation to the population will increase more in the future.
