Grate 1/2 teaspoon zest from the lemon. Stir the apples, cherries, sugar and lemon zest in a 4-quart slow cooker.
Cover and cook on LOW for 4 to 5 hours or until the apples are tender.
Beat the pudding mix and milk in a medium bowl with a whisk for about 2 minutes or until the mixture is thickened.
