This chart and explanation about cherry sizing appears on the site of Stemilt Growers .
Row is the industry measurement used when sizing cherries. This term dates back to when cherry shippers packed the top layer of a box of cherries in neat rows. The number of cherries that fit in each row determined the size the cherries. For instance, if 10 cherries fit in a row, those cherries would be called 10 row.
Cherries continue to be classified in row sizes today. However, they are no longer placed in rows, but rather automatically sized during packing.As a guide, the smaller the row number, the larger the cherry will be.
