Yes, I live in the National Cherry Capital and we get very excited about our cherries. Thought you'd enjoy seeing the orchards in bloom this spring. First the sweet cherries bloom followed by the tarts, or pie cherries. They nearly always bloom around Mother's Day and an excursion through the orchards is a must. Many of us grow up here picking cherries as a summer job or working in the canneries. Dried cherries are a relatively new product and are wonderful to use as you would raisins or cranberries. They are fantastic covered in chocolate!
