These days, most fruits are available year-round in American supermarkets, because we import them from all over the world no matter the season. (They’re definitely not as tasty or healthy when shipped from across the globe, but none-the-less they are available). Rainier cherries are an exception. These yellow-fleshed cherries aren’t grown in very many places, so they’re usually only seen at markets in June (from California) and July (from Washington). A ripe Rainier cherry is yellow with some red and perhaps some light brown spots on the skin, and is so juicy and sweet you’ll think you’ve died and gone to heaven. So keep your eye out for them this month and next, and enjoy before it’s too late!
