cut the bananas into thin slices.



chop the pecans.



slice cherries into halves and keep juice to the side.



In the serving bowl, layer ingredients in the following order: oranges, sprinkle sugar, bananas, crushed pineapple, apple, coconut, pecans, cherries.



Repeat layers until the bowl is full.



From the side of the bowl, pour in the pineapple juice and pour the left over cherry juice (do not pour over the center).



Keep chilled when not being served.



Tip: ensure the apples and bananas are on a citrus layer, so they keep from turning brown and mushy.
