still not sure who is the wrecking ball and who is the building?

Okay, what do you guys think about this pie chart

I have some disagreements, for example the strawberry-rhubarb.  It enrages me that people refuse to just make a rhubarb pie--they've always got to dilute it with those stupid strawberries.  Look, make a strawberry pie or make a rhubarb pie, but stop acting like rhubarb needs a helper.  Nobody puts rhubarb in a corner!  I am puzzled why apple pie is the only one for which a double crust is preferred.  And then they prescribe a crumb crust for the lemon pie, but whatever. 

All in all, I like this little chart because it is cute and makes me think about pie.  And I can't believe I've never thought to make an apricot pie!  What a tragedy!  I will remedy this next spring. 

And now I'm off to the kitchen to start baking some pumpkin.

My problem is the cherry pie in September. Where are there cherries in September?

And peaches in August! I think they must have transposed those.

Are you saying there are cherries in August in Utah?
Cherries here are May-June. Gone by August when the peaches are at their peak.
Maybe this is a geographic issue.
But still. Cherries in September?

No, just that they are before peaches. So really cherries should be in the apricot spot, apricots in the blueberry spot, and peaches in the cherry spot. Pie cherries are later than sweet cherries, but even so, long gone before August, as you said. We get peaches in August, but we don't drown in them until September.
