Rainier cherries are a premium cherry variety with exceptional high sugar levels. The plump, round fruit grows on trees between 9-11 meters. Rainer cherries have a thin skin that is yellow to yellow-orange in color and as it matures develops a red blushing. The flesh is a pale golden color with red streaks near the skin and seed. The flavor of Rainier cherries is sweet and low acid with a caramel-like finish.
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.
