Main Question or Discussion Point

I noticed that the seeds that were drying on the plate for a couple of hours were stuck to the plate.

How come?

My guess is, the cherries contain sugar. The liquid around the pip dries leaving the sticky sugar to stick them to the plate. Why do things stick? I'm guessing surface tension, chemical bonding or static electricity, with sugar I'm thinking it's surface tension.

Have you tried this with Bing Cherries?
