Bursting with flavor and with a distinctive rich red color, Bing cherries are the classic summer treat.  This year, however, why not try one of the other varieties grown here in the Pacific NW:  Chelan, Tieton, Lambert, Lapin, Skeena or Sweetheart cherries.  And for an extra special treat, be sure to sample some Rainiers–the large yellow cherry with a bright red blush.  Trust me . . . you haven’t lived until you’ve tried a thick slice of dark chocolate cake topped with a Rainier cherry sauce.  Mmmmmm.

These are absolutely the best tasting cherries in the country.  So, don’t miss out!  Pick up a couple of bags today and savor the sweet taste of summer for yourself.

Special Note:  The photo was taken at Tiny’s Organic in Wenatchee, WA.  This family-owned farm also grows peaches, plums, nectarines, apples, and a wide variety of vegetables.
