    Even some of the long-time...

    Even some of the long-time locals don't know about this one: CJ Olson's Cherry Stand. Before Silicon Valley earned its moniker, the ENTIRE San Jose corridor was once nothing but cherry trees as far as the eye can see, and most of them belonged to CJ Olson. Most of these cherry orchards have been sold off now, but the original cherry stand and water tower still remains! Drive down El Camino East until you hit Mathilda; the cherry stand and water tower will be immediately on your right, next to PF Chang's restaurant. This is the ORIGINAL stand (which I understand is being rebuilt). You'll note that the water tower says 'SVSU' on it; this is a little local joke about the Sunnyvale State University. Ask inside for the whole story. CJ Olson's has the best, freshest cherries around from April through the end of cherry season. The rest of the year they have a selection of fresh home-grown fruit and veggies from local growers, and in the winter they have special Christmas gift packs. Very quaint, and not to be missed....these kinds of places are rapidly disappearing in the tech world!
