Countdown to Cherry Season 2017

Cherry Blossoms

Chelan Fresh employees and growers think spring is one of the best seasons of the year. Spring means the start of our Chelan Fresh cherry season is less than 80 days away. And as the days get longer and the sun gets warmer, the cherry trees leave the cold of winter behind and burst into blossom. Each little white flower holds the promise of a ripe, juicy cherry. 

Spring means as you walk through the orchards you can hear the spring breeze rustle the leaves and the air is filled with an incredibly sweet scent of cherry sweet-red-cherries-chelan-fresh.pngblossoms. As you get closer to the trees, you’ll also hear the buzzing of hard working honeybees, gathering nectar and pollen for their hives. These diligent workers also pollinate the lovely blossoms, allowing us to bring you the sensational cherries you have come to expect from our growers. Cherries are bursting with nutrition. They are loaded with antioxidents and anti-inflammatory properties along with vitamin C, potassium and contain about 3g of fiber per serving. 

Look for Chelan Fresh cherries at your local retailer in early June.
