Have you had a chance to taste a cherry from the Yakima Valley this year? Growers in the Yakima Valley expect a crop between 18 and 20 million boxes when the harvest is over. Some orchards have already been picked others are still waiting for cherries to ripen on trees. Growers like Stacy Stoltnow in Selah say while there's not the number of cherries they saw last season the fruit is bigger and juicier than 2015.
despite the early start, the total harvest is expected to be a little less than last year's, due in part to problems with the bing variety. Still plenty of cherries are now on store shelves and U-pick orchards for people to enjoy this coming holiday weekend.
