Rainier Cherries, that is!
Rainier Cherries are all over the place here in the Pacific Northwest. 'Tis the season! Of course, I had never had a Rainier Cherry, so we stopped at a farm stand and bought a basket. They are so large, and sweet, and juicy. I quickly became addicted and have been buying them wherever we go.
Developed in 1952 at Washington State University, they are a cross between a Bing Cherry and a Van cultivar. The result was this large golden, reddish, orangish cherry with sweet golden flesh. They're just so yummy, and so darn sweet! Thankfully the season was later than usual this year due to the cool spring weather. Lucky for me!
I wonder if they would grow in Oklahoma? Nah. Too hot probably. Might be worth a try though. Hmmmm...
