Default Cherries weighed with or without pits?

Should I weigh cherries on the food scale with the pits still inside, or should I cut out the pits and then weigh them? I always slice cherries in half and then cut out the pits before I eat them so I don't have to keep spitting out pits and it's more pleasant for me. I can also eat them with a fork that way in a fruit salad.

Someone told me my calorie count might be off because I've been weighing the fruit after I cut the pits out to calculate the calories.

I use the measurement that is "oz. yields." That way, it's the yield from however many ounces you weigh out...I assume that factors in pitting them.

Ok thanks, I really don't know what that means. "The yield from however many ounces you weigh out". So if I measure 5 ounces, will that tell me how many calories are in 5 ounces of just the fruit part?

It means if you weigh out 5 ounces with stems and pits, then the calculated values are based on whatever actual yield will come from that.
