Rainier

A pale fleshed cherry, plump and creamy sweet. Developed in 1952 as a cross between Van and Bing in Washington USA. A most amazing flavour, these almost translucent beauties are considered the cream of the crop. The fruit need to be carefully handled to avoid bruising, and like all cherries need netting to protect from birds. Pollinated by Van, Bing, Lapin, Stella. Note: price includes royalty fees.

Pollination Guide

  • Pollination is far simpler than most people think. Generally, unless self fertile simply get 2 or more different varieties in the same group (eg pears) to ensure adequate pollination. A more comprehensive explanation can be found in our Pollination Guide
