Red, ripe cherries
One of summer's true treats, organic cherries are perfect for picnics and outdoor dining, especially when eaten out of hand. And with such a short season to enjoy them, a handful is never enough.
Each rosy orb from our local growers bursts with that unmistakable combination of sweet and tart, not to mention vitamin C. No wonder it's among the world's oldest cultivated fruits.
MEET OUR CHERRY GROWERS
George and Apple Otte
When George and Apple Otte initially moved to Tonasket, Wash. in 1976, they just wanted to pick fruit. Little did they know this dream would turn into their own 18-acre certified organic orchard.
Running a sustainable operation known as River Valley Organics, the Ottes grow apples and pears for the fall, and supply us with their signature Lapin cherries — a variety similar to the classic Bing, but redder in color and extremely juicy with a distinctive crunch.
The Ottes spread out their harvest, selectively picking cherries as they ripen, to ensure we only receive the best product. Read more »
