Enjoy a 7.5 lb box of #1 Rainier cherries, picked fresh off the trees from orchards in Eastern Washington.

Rainier cherries distinguish themselves from all other cherry varieties by the color of their skin and their unparalleled high sugar levels. Their coloring exhibits layers of golden hues blushed with tones of pink and red, an unequivocally unique facade. Their shape is quintessential cherry: plump, rounded and slightly heart-shaped with a dimple at the stem end. The flesh is a pale golden color with red streaks near the skin and seed. The flavor of Rainier cherries is memorably sweet and low acid with a caramel-like finish on the palate. 

Rainier cherries are best for fresh eating or as an ingredient in desserts such as ice cream, cakes, pies, pastries and tarts. Sweet pairings include other stone fruit, especially apricots and plums, berries, vanilla, cinnamon, nutmeg, dark chocolate and white chocolate, cream, maple and almond. Complimentary savory pairings include herbs such as basil and arugula, cilantro flowers, hazelnut, pistachio and olive oil, citrus, smoked fish, anchovies, pork, chiles, ginger, pepitas, pine nuts, scallops, fresh cheeses such as chevre and burrata and aged sheep’s and cow’s milk cheeses. ” Source: specialtyproduce.com
