Cherries, Rainier

Rainier is a cultivar cherry, or a plant selected for desirable characteristics that can be maintained by propagation. It was developed in 1952 at Washington State University by Harold Fogle, and named after Mount Rainier. It is a cross between the Bing and Van cultivars. Rainiers are sweet cherries with a thin skin and thick creamy-yellow flesh. The cherries are very sensitive to temperature, wind, and rain. About 1/3 of a Rainier cherry orchard’s crop is eaten by birds, which accounts for their higher prices. Select only firm and unblemished rainier cherries. We could not find any specific nutritional information for Rainier cherries. See Cherries for nutritional information.
