Rainier Cherries are sweeter and creamier than most of the dark sweet varieties, making them prized all over the world. Rainier cherries are gown in the pacific northwest. Rainiers are one of the most delicate and difficult cherries to grow. They are sensitive to wind, rain and temperature, and show their bruises easily due to their thin red-yellow skin. After purchasing rainier cherries, be sure to put them directly into your refrigerator for a few hours to cool them and firm them up. The window for harvesting these special cherries is very small as they must be protected from multiple factors. Therefore, you will usually only find them in stores during the summer months, as they are harvested only in late June to early July. Cherries are recognized for their anti-inflammatory properties. They are often used to provide relief from pain, to help with sleep, improve muscle recovery and even known to treat gout.
