SWEET STEMLESS CHERRY Picota *Canada addresses only please*
Picota is a sweet cherry. Picota cherries naturally separate from their stalks when picked, leading them to be referred to as "stemless" or "stalkless" cherries. The term "Picota" means "peaked" – this refers to the shape of the cherries, which have a slight peak at the end.
