Properly prepared cherry pits provide a clean-burning fuel that is safe to use in pellet stoves. Dried cherry pits burn super hot and are considered pound for pound to be one of the most efficient home heating fuels, according to experts at CherryPits.com.
Once thought of as a waste product, cherry pits can be cleaned and dried for burning in pellet stoves that have been certified by the worldwide safety organization Underwriters Laboratories. Cherry pits may be purchased in bulk from CherryPitFuel.com for as little as $125 per ton in March 2015. Multi-fuel stoves that burn cherry pits, olive pits, grains and wood pellets may be purchased from American Energy Systems.
