Promotable Volumes of Cherries

Every year in August we wait to see what bounties Mother Nature has to offer us here in the mountains and valleys of Central Washington. 

Sweet-front1-839474-edited.jpgThis year, large promotable volumes of Cherries are available in August. Our late season cherry crop is peaking on larger, dark burgundy colored fruit that is perfect for consumers enjoying the last few weeks of summer travel, picnics and BBQ’s. Our cherry bags and clam labels give consumers creative ideas for using cherries in pies, smoothies or even freezing cherries to snack on later this fall. Our website offers information on the benefits of eating cherries as well as numerous recipes for baking and even cooking with cherries. Don’t miss the opportunity to cash in on the consumer favorite late season cherries and give them center stage in your produce department. Contact your Chelan Fresh Sales rep to talk about cherries or coming soon - Bartlett pears and early season Galas.
