Freezing cherries - issues

2 months ago

My fresh cherries are pitted and then frozen individually on a cookie sheet & put into ziploc baggies. Then I put some in the freezer outside, and some in the kitchen fridge/freezer combo. The cherries I put outside, which were frozen SOLID, now look like they've defrosted to a degree, and given up their juice.

The cherries themselves are still partially frozen BUT WAIT! Everything else in the outside freezer is still frozen solid--only the cherries are like this.

Does this occur when the (frost-free) freezer "cycles" or something? Does this occur only with cherries...or other fruit as well?

The cherries on the right are the ones frozen inside, no softening or anything--frozen solid.
