We are packing beautiful Washington cherries in our Smiling Buddha label. Quality has been excellent, with average firmtechs of 315 to 420, brix 18-25, and 4-6 color. Varieties include Cristalina, Coral Champagne, and Bing. We expect to get into heavy volumes of bing for the next week. Shipping by Air globally. Please contact us for more information, daily quality reports and cherry photos.
We are excited to be beginning another cherry season in Washington State. Offering our customers export quality cherries everyday by air and ocean. The crop out look is approximately 18M cartons (20lb), and we expect demand to be strong at the beginning throughout the season.
The first variety will be Chelan, which is well known for it's sweetness and crunchy firm texture which Asians love! Followed by the Coral Champagne, a newer variety that has become very popular. Corals have more sugars, larger sizes and are firm enough to ship by ocean to Asia.
We ship to China, Korea, Vietnam, Thailand, Cambodia, Malaysia, Philippines, Taiwan R.O.C., Singapore, the Middle East, Europe and Canada.
Stay tuned for more news as our season progresses and you can contact our Sales Team HERE for more information.
Thanks so much!

CORAL CHAMPAGNE PHOTOS
The first California export grade cherries began a few days ago. The harvest is light this season with volumes down 55% from 2017. Early varieties in the southern districts were impacted by spring weather, and volumes will continue to be light until late next week. The first strong export variety has been Coral Champagne Cherries. Surprisingly very good firmness, above average brix (sugar), and larger-than-normal row size percentages.
Today's packout averages are as follows:
FOB prices remain high for another few days until volumes increase. Fumigated and non-Fumigated cherries are available. Rainier cherries and Bing Cherries expected to start harvesting in the next week. More photos are available at www.cherrysnobs.com
