*** KUDOS for Our Cherries! ***

"I just wanted to compliment you on the last order of cherries I received from you. They were the best cherries I've ever eaten. They were huge, meaty, and sweet. I didn't spot a single--not one--blemish in the whole batch. Thank you...I'll be a repeat customer for sure!"  --Maura

"The best cherries ever, delivered to your door."     --Bon Appetit Magazine

 "Our food editors are wild for the Bing cherries grown  ... in Washington State. Shipped right after being picked, each red globe is firm, juicy, and bursting with sweet flavor."   --Gourmet Magazine

"When I tasted the Bing cherries from ... [ChefShop.com], I thought I had died and gone to Heaven."  --Marian Burros, The New York Times

***EARLY ROBINS, RAINIERS, BINGS, LAPINS or SWEETHEARTS ... OH MY!***

With so many varieties of fresh cherries for sale, how to choose? Well, you can always order the full Quintet of Fresh Cherries: one box of each variety delivered over the course of the Washington cherry season! But if that's too many cherries for you, here's our super-speedy run-down of the varieties of fresh cherries:

* Early Robin Cherries: An early-season Rainier-like, light-skinned, sweet cherry. Very low acid - so, "sweet" is best description. Perfect for people who are sensitive to acid - like my mother-in-law, who LOVES these - she's 95. (Estimated SHIPPING: Mid to Late JUNE, 2019)

* Bing Cherries: Famous Bings are delicious, dark-red sweet cherries, firm and juicy. (Estimated SHIPPING: Late JUNE, 2019)

* Rainier Cherries: These quintessential Washington cherries are rare outside of the state. Rainiers have a pale, yellow-ish pink-ish skin, with a very sweet flavor. Also low acid, although not as low acid as the Early Robins. (Estimated SHIPPING: LATE JUNE, 2019)
 
* Lapin Cherries: Harder to come by outside our region, Lapins are big, firm, almost crunchy to the bite, and lusciously juicy. Big and meaty is how I would describe them. (Estimated SHIPPING: Early JULY, 2019)

* Sweetheart Cherries: The last to ripen, Sweethearts have a hint more tang to their sweetness, and they're not as enormous as the Lapins. If you like that tart, cherry flavor, these are the cherries for you. Of the 5 sweet cherries, these are the best for baking and preserving. (Estimated SHIPPING: Mid to Late JULY, 2019)
