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!

Sutherland started packing Washington cherries last Saturday, June 10th. Quality was exceptionally nice for the first day. Unusual, for the the beginning of the Washington deal. Weather and crop conditions have been ideal this season, which is contributing to good packouts. The Chelan cherry variety is showing good colour of +3.5, Firmtech values of +320, and brix of +15.
Rainier cherry packing is starting today. Quality is looking very good. We will post QC photos to CherrySnobs & Facebook later today for viewing.
