Dark Sweet Cherries
Dark Sweet Cherries varieties include: Chelan, Sweetheart, Lapin, Sunburst, Stella, and Bing—the most popular. Bing Cherries originated in Oregon, and are grown along the Pacific Coast of the United States and in coastal areas in Central and South America. In California, Bing Cherries begin to ripen in early June, whereas in Oregon and Washington they’re ready in late June, early July. They require a wet environment, making them the perfect fruit for the Northwest.
The Fruit Company only uses cherries grown in Oregon and Washington. While we love supporting local farms and orchards, it’s the quality and sweetness that makes choosing local cherries a no-brainer. Orchardists in the area deal with rainy spring months that threaten to ruin each year’s crop, but every summer they turn out the best cherries in the world.
