With nouns of measure used with a numeral or plural determiner, the verb is normally in the plural. In such cases, masculine and neuter nouns of measurement have no ending to show that they are plural. zwei Pfund Kirschen. However, especially in spoken German, the verb may be in the singular, as the quantity is ENVISAGED as a single whole. Zwei Pfund Kirschen reicht/reichen aus.
