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.
