Last week I had the pleasure of touring the Rainier Fruit Company headquarters in Yakima, Washington. One of the fruits they are famous for growing are Rainier cherries. They also grow several other varieties of cherries, all of which are shipped nationwide and internationally for people to enjoy. I was so interested to learn how cherries are processed before they reach store shelves. It is amazing to see what they can do on such a large scale. Today I am thrilled to show you how these cherries are handled before they reach your kitchen. Warning: Reading this article is going to make you want to go buy some!
