Very Cherry Mixed Fruit Crisp

Busy families everywhere know how hard it is to get some quality time in nowadays.  Time-savvy moms can bake brownies from the box or cookies from a tube, but what about a healthier option like fruit crisp? That’s where Del Monte’s Very Cherry Mixed fruit comes in to give you more time and money for your family.

A combination of peaches, pears, and an extra dose of cherries, Very Cherry Mixed Fruit makes fruit crisp a snap. No need to pop over to the store to get peaches AND pears AND cherries that aren’t even in season and have the price markup to show for it. Keep it cheap, healthy, and good with a Very Cherry Mixed Fruit Crisp (recipe below). Then you can take all that time and money you saved and enjoy the weekend with the family!


  • Peaches are a good source of vitamins A, B, and C.  That’s good for your eyes, energy, and skin!

  • Pears cause the fewest allergic reactions of all fruits
