Sweet Cherry trees include about 8 different varieties of sweet cherries that all turn a dark red to black when ripe. These rows are planted in succession and flagged as each variety gets ripe. Our employees pick the tops of trees and allow customers to pick the lower portions of trees.
Rainier Cherry trees are yellow with a pink cheek. They usually ripen about 10 days after the dark red sweet cherries are ready. These are a sweet cherry as well, but have a different flavor.
Tart Cherry trees are all Montmorency variety. They are excellent for pies and freeze very well for baking later. Tart cherries are much more perishable than sweet cherries. It’s highly recommended to pick them with the stems on and use them within 2 days of picking.
