In Cherry Picking, six trees and shrubs bearing fruit are laid out on the table. Underneath them six other cards are placed, showing fruit, ladders and baskets of different values. The players simultaneously play one card from their hands, indicating the plant from which they want to "harvest" - yet played cards replace the cards harvested, so depending on the player order you might not get what you wanted, but rather what was placed there in the meantime. Even so, collected baskets and ladders might be valuable. In the end, the player with the most worthy mixture of fruit - whether many of the same kind or all different kinds - and additional ladders and baskets of high value wins the game.
