    As for the grapes and cherries, you can leave whole or you can cut into halves. The key is to have all fruit be about the same size.

    Put all fruit, except bananas in large bowl, add pecan pieces, mix in cool whip to just coat the fruit. (I like mine a little creamier so I also add in more cool whip then needed). Refrigerate until you are ready to serve.
