Mid-Season Cherry Forecast
As mid-July approaches, Chelan Fresh is at the peak of our cherry harvest. With some of our largest producing orchards situated in the northern part of Central Washington and at higher elevations, our cherry orchards hit their peak both in both volume and fruit size. According to Sales Manager Tim Evans, “We continue to pick some of the best eating, and larger than normal cherries as we move into mid-July. Our fruit continues to peak on 9.5 row and larger and the summer weather to date has been slightly cooler, creating one of the best eating cherry crops in recent memory. US Retailers need to know that strong Export markets are demanding more and more of this season’s smaller crop, so prices are trending higher.
