Cherry Harvest A Little Late, But Good Quality

It is a bit later that normal, but there are plenty of good signs for this year’s Mid-Columbia cherry harvest.  Lynn Long of Oregon State University Extension says the cherries are looking good at this point, in spite of cool weather during pollination season.  He noted some rain late last week caused minor damage to some early varieties, but he said it is a decent crop.  The downside of the late harvest start is difficulty to reach the July 4 market.  Long says they usually like to get most Mid-Columbia cherries on the market by the Fourth of July, and while there will be some on available then, the bulk of Bing cherries will be a few days after that.
