Cherry Transition to the Pacific Northwest
We are ending the California Cherry Bing season with a bang! California Cherries are finishing up this week and we will be starting with the Pacific Northwest crop. Dark sweets like Chelans and Sequoias will be some of the first varieties we will see out of the PNW. Bings and Rainiers will start up around the middle of June and the season will continue into the first few weeks of August.
Every cherry tree produces about 7,000 cherries or, if you prefer to think about it in real terms, about thirty pies’ worth.
