Cherry Harvest 2016

16 Jun Cherry Harvest 2016

Cherry season is here in both Prescott and Wallula orchard locations. The high temperatures of this past spring accelerated a lot of Washington State’s crops. Cherries were 2 weeks ahead of schedule with Wallula began harvesting the last week of May and finished the first week of June. Prescott Orchards began picking the first week of June and is expected to finish in the end of June.

The unpredictable weather of our Spring had both orchards face several obstacles including rain and high temperatures which can cause splits in the cherries.

We would like to thank all the crews and Managers who endured late nights and early mornings to protect and harvest these First Fruits of the season.
