We are looking forward to a strong cherry crop this year! The trees are full of green leaves and little cherries. At this point, we feel as though the cherry trees have officially survived the frost season and will produce a healthy crop of cherries if the weather continues to cooperate. We hope to have sweet cherries just after the 4th of July and tart cherries around mid July. We will have both of our cherry pitters up and running again this year at our M-88 Market.
All the other fruit is looking great right now. Apricots have fruit setting and early strawberries hit full bloom last week. We are still waiting to see what is hanging on peaches, nectarines, apples, and pears but we have high hopes. We are looking forward to a very fruitful year!
