"Fishy" cherries?

Post  Ginger Blue on 8/5/2016, 2:56 pm

Okay, here's an off-the-wall question:

Not having cherry trees of my own, every once in a while I purchase fresh cherries from the grocery store.  Several times now, I've gotten a cherry or two in the batch which taste like fish. affraid No The fruits are firm, juicy, and otherwise perfect, thoroughly washed, with no signs of any kind of residue or wax on them.  What would cause this awfulness???

Ew!  I have no idea!  Strange!  The actual cherry tastes like fish?  Maybe over ripe? IDK!

Maybe, but they don't seem overripe. On further thought, it occurs to me that most of the cherries I've had this summer have been bland.  I can't imagine what would cause the fish flavor; maybe it's just a bad year for the crop, in general. thinking

Weirdness does happen.  I completely believe you, no doubts...just no idea what would make that happen to a random cherry....

Did you use a fish based nutrient solution such as fish emulsion.

Our handy man grows veggies for sale at his neighborhood stand. His first year everybody was complaining about his fishy tasting cucumbers so he stopped using fish emulsion fertilizer.

Don't know if fish emulsion was used, I didn't grow them; I got them from the grocery store.  I think I'll sit out the rest of the season - maybe next year will be better.
