The long days of summer are already enjoyable, but they’re even more enjoyable with good food! A go-to of ours is cherries. Cherries are a great snack and something we look forward to once summer comes around.
What’s even better is that Super Cherries are now available! Super Cherries come from family business Super Fresh Growers in Washington! These cherries are grown in the Yakima and Wenatchee regions of the Pacific Northwest and The Dalles region of Northern Oregon.
Cherries generally have two main flavors- sweet or tart. Let’s look a little closer at some of the Super Cherries available now
Dark Sweet Cherries
Dark Sweet Cherries are available from May through August, but the peak months are June and July. These cherries are large and have a deep red color. They are firm and sweet!
Dark Sweet Cherries are commonly confused with Bing Cherries. This dark red variety was developed to mature at different times and places and they are available for longer!
Rainier cherries are the light colored cherries known for their glossy, golden color. These cherries are a cross between the Bing and the Van cherry. They were first developed in 1952 at Washington State University and named after Mt. Rainier. Originally these cherries were made to help pollinate other cherries, but growers soon came to love the taste and the look.
Rainier Cherries are known for their unique color and for their incredibly sweet taste
In addition to tasting delightful, they are high in nutrition. Cherries are a good source of fiber and high in antioxidants. They also contain flavonoids. Flavonoids are what naturally bring color to fruits and veggies. The flavonoid benefits are that they seek and destroy free radicals in the body.
We hope you are enjoying the cherry season as much as we are!
Here’s a tip on how to enjoy cherries:
Cherries should remain unwashed until you are ready to enjoy them. Cherry skin absorbs water and will soften the texture of the fruit early. They should be stored in a plastic container sealed tightly, in the coldest part of your refrigerator. When you are ready to snack, wash them and allow them to sit in room temperature momentarily in order to release their full flavor.
The long summer days have hit us. While it’s great to be able to enjoy the daylight for a longer time, it means that the temperature is HOT! Between the humidity and the heat, we are constantly looking for ways to renew, reenergize, and refresh while enjoying all the outdoor activities that come with summer.
What you put into your body greatly affects your energy level. It is a good idea to nourish your body, especially in the extreme heat. Luckily, the summer season has some of the best fruit!
Here are some of our top favorite summer fruits
Cold watermelon on a hot summer day is such a treat. The great thing about watermelon is that it can actually help hydrate you too! Watermelon is about 90% water on top of all the other vitamins and nutrients watermelon contains.By eating watermelon, you’re getting some of the key nutrients you need while soaking up the sun!
With a summer growing season, cherries are something we look forward to every year! Cherries are high in antioxidants and anti-inflammatories. Whether you prefer the sweeter cherries or the tarter cherries, they are both good and good for you.
Peaches are a very diverse fruit. You can eat them on their own, make a dessert out of them, put them in a salad, or even enjoy them in a glass of wine! Peaches are high in antioxidants, vitamins, and nutrients. They are known to help with digestion, boost immunity, protect your skin, and more!
Another way to beat the heat and still get the nutrients from fruit is to make a smoothie! You can freeze the fruit or mix some ice with fresh fruit. Throw in some of our freshly squeezed orange juice and you have a delicious drink that will help make the heat a little more bearable!
Every good celebration needs good dessert! Whether you’re having a little get together or just celebrating the 4th on your own, the red, white, and blue theme will be prominent this weekend.

Maybe you’re in the mood to make your own dessert. Apple pie is a classic American dessert. Many people love to enjoy a slice of pie with some ice cream. We have a recipe that is a must try this 4th of July, Salted Caramel Apple Pie in a mason jar lid!
