Rainier Cherries

DOMESTIC / Early June - Late August

Rainier cherries are prized for their appearance and taste. Like the traditional sweet cherry they are large, round, and glossy, but the coloring is yellow with a red blush on one side from the sun. This cherry has a distinctive tart or slightly acidic flavor that makes them a unique treat.

Nectarines

Nectarines

DOMESTIC / Mid-July - Mid-September

Yellow nectarines are a naturally occurring relative of the peach, giving it the same slightly sweeter, succulent taste. Unlike a peach, the flesh of a yellow nectarine is bright and glossy yellow with a red or orange blush. Nectarines are also slightly smaller in size than peaches. Nectarines are excellent for cooking or eating out of hand.

White nectarines have a paler yellow to white background and rosier blush than the traditional yellow nectarine, although they are the same size and texture. The white nectarine is also sweeter than the yellow varieties.

Peaches

Peaches

DOMESTIC / Mid-July - Mid-September

Yellow peaches are the most beloved and popular of the stone fruits. They range in color from pink-blushed over a white background, to gold with a red blush, and have a signature fuzzy flesh. The flavor of a peach can range from very sweet to mildly acidic depending on variety and picking times. Peaches do not increase in sweetness once picked, so it is important to choose peaches that have a strong fragrance indicating the flavor inside.

White peaches are identifiable by their color, a pink blush over a white background, and sweeter taste than the traditional yellow varieties. The sugar content makes these peaches a perfect candidate to grill for a quick summer dessert.
