Pacific Northwest Cherries

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

Ideal growing conditions in the Pacific Northwest produce the sweetest and crunchiest cherries for the summer. You want to choose bright looking, plump, dark colored cherries and avoid wrinkly fruit.  Check the stem areas for rot and splits at the blossom end.  The darker the color the sweeter the fruit and the firmer the fruit the longer they last.  Store ripe cherries in the refrigerator until ready to use and wash cherries before eating.   Cherries are very low in saturated fat, cholesterol and sodium.  They’re also a good source of dietary fiber and vitamin C and loaded with potassium, a natural blood-pressure reducer.
