Rainier Cherries are a breed of cherry created by Harold Fogle in 1952 when he crossed the Bing and Van Cherries. He named them after Mount Rainier. They are very sweet and juicy with light skin, and are considered a premium cherry.
Rainier Cherry Day celebrates this special cherry on July 11th, which is right at its peak harvest season. Celebrate this holiday by eating some now while they are at their freshest and sweetest, or use some cherries to bake delicious desserts.
