USA Rainier Cherry
This variant is currently sold out
'Rainiers' are considered a premium type of cherry. They are sweet with a thin skin and thick creamy-yellow flesh.
Not only are Rainier cherries a beautiful two-toned yellow/blush colour, they are also intensely tasty, sweet and complex, occasionally with an almost bitter edge. Very very good. The sweetness the flavour intensity, the complexity, all seem enhanced.
Why are Rainier Cherries More Expensive?
One issue with the Rainier is that they bruise easily or the bruising shows up easier because of their lighter colour. They are also more likely to be damaged by wind and rain. The supply of Rainier is nowhere near as large as more traditional dark red cherry.
