I've just been developing this habit. If you leave a strawberry in your mouth long enough without chewing the temperature and saliva would slowly dissolve the fruit, and you'd get the taste slowly but nicely. With a cherry it feels like you're sucking on tasteless rubber and the skin never, ever seems to just melt off. It's been an hour with me and one cherry, and there have been no changes.
So does a cherry never dissolve in your mouth or does it simply take a lot of time? If it doesn't, why?
