Rainier Cherry was selected from a variety of cherry trees at the Washington State University Agriculture Experiment Station in 1954. It has a unique color, with half of its surface being pink and the other half being yellow. It is crisp and juicy, sweet and flavorful, and has a unique taste that leaves a lingering flavor on the lips.
Fresh California rainier cherries can be eaten raw or used to make a variety of desserts, such as fruit salads, cakes, and pastries. In addition, they can be used to make wines, vinegar, and other drinks.
