Green cherries?

My coworker just bought a couple of green cherries from the farmer's market in Union Square. They come in these tiny pods that look like paper lanterns. They're smaller than regular cherries and almost look like green grapes but are much firmer and more opaque. Any idea what they are? We want to try them but we can't figure out if they need to be cooked or prepared in some way.
