Check out all of the care we take when shipping fresh cherries:

- Next, we gently place the fresh tart cherries in a cooler. This keeps the fresh tart cherries cool during shipment.
- This inexpensive cooler is placed into a larger cardboard box.
- Next, we place several layers of newspaper on the top of the cherries. This is a simple and inexpensive barrier.
- We then place a small package of dry ice on top.
- The cooler is then closed and taped.
- Finally, we print an overnight or two-day shipping label. This allows you to get your fresh cherry deliver within just a few days of harvest.

This means the cherries are only harvested once a year. This is why, we only ship fresh cherries once a year or you are only able to find the fresh fruit in the summer months. In addition, the fresh produce is very perishable and delicate fruit. This means during the months of April and May it is vital Mother Nature allows good weather. This allows the cherries to “take” and go from blossom to fruit. Please contact us for availability on a yearly basis of fresh cherry delivery.
