Cherries – from California through Washington
The West Coast Cherry Season lasts from the first week of May until the end of August. Cherries are one of the freshest produce items available. Ripened on the tree, cherries are generally harvested, packed then shipped by RJO to be on the shelf of your favorite retailer within a few days. Growing regions scattered throughout California and Washington offer small differences in microclimate which allow cherries throughout the region to ripen at different times through the season. RJO Bird Dogs ensure that all summer long, the West Coast Cherries that you enjoy are never more than a few days from the tree.
There are a number of cherry varieties each with a slightly different flavor characteristic and harvest, and include Brooks, Tulares, Rainiers, Bings, Lapins and Sweethearts.
