Murray Family Farms has been family owned and operated by four different generations of the Murray family. The farm is in Bakersfield, California, and is known for growing a large variety of specialty vegetables, citrus, stone fruit, and tropical fruits and vegetables. Rainier cherries are bright orange with a pink blush and feature vibrant yellow flesh. The cherry’s skin is taut, glossy, smooth, and thin. Rainier cherries are low-acid with high sugar content and feature a bright, floral, and sweet flavor with peach and caramel-like nuances.
Rainier cherries are available during late spring and summer.
All cherries are members of the family, Prunus and are descendents of the wild cherry, Prunus avium. Cherries are stone fruits, alongside apricots, plums, peaches and almonds. Stone fruits are climacteric in nature, which means the fruit continues to ripen post-harvest. The Rainier cherry is a hybrid of two very sweet, red varieties, the bing cherry and van cherry. Rainer cherry trees are sensitive to growing conditions, and about 1/3 of an orchard's crop are eating by birds.
