About Cherries - Cherry Varieties

The Bing

The leading commercial sweet cherry in North America. Fruit is firm, juicy and a deep-mahogany-red when ripe. Exceptionally large fruit of finest quality with an intensly sweet, vibrant flavour. Bing has become the standard to which other varieties are compared.

The Chelan

The leading early-ripening sweet cherry of the Pacific Northwest. Fruit ripens two weeks ahead of Bing, yet resembles Bing with firm, round, heart-shaped fruit of good size. The best deep, mahogany red cherry before Bing and less susceptible to rain-cracking.

The Rainier

A very attractive, exceptionally large, yellow cherry with a red blush. Rainier has a distinctive and superior appearance among sweet cherry varieties. Delicately flavoured with extraordinary sugar levels, the flesh is pure yellow, very firm and finely textured. A premium niche variety that ripens after Bing.

The Skeena

Large, very firm and sweet, Skeena™ continues to grow in popularity with consumers and growers. Maturing about 16 days after Bing, this dark red to almost black variety has a very dense texture. A great late-season variety which will keep you in cherries until the end of July.

The Sweetheart

A large, bright red cherry maturing one week to ten days after Lapins (3 weeks after Bing). Sweetheart™ has a mild, sweet flavour and outstanding firmness. This heart- shaped cherry ships extremely well, and will keep your late July and August cherry displays full.

The Tieton

Extraordinarily large in size, with excellent firmness and a mild sweet flavor. Tieton™ is an early-season mahogany-red cherry, ripening one week before Bing. The impressive size, attractively glossy fruit, and thick green stems produce a visually stunning fruit for premium displays.
