Inglewood and MDR don't have any. What's up?

  1. The cool, wet spring has delayed the bulk of this year's crop. They're around, and should be everywhere in the next few days.

    1. On a related note: Does anyone know if CostCo frozen cherries part of the CostCo frozen berry recall? I have a giant bag in my freezer.

        No. The organic berry mix with sour cherries and pom (delicious) that we had a misfortune of buying twice was part of the recall.

      2. The local crop is almost gone and the Michigan crop is delayed and small.

        1. who has good cherries then? I was getting mine from albertsons and they weren't good or inexpensive.

                  i thought the california cherries were pretty darn good this year, no matter where i bought them.

                    I had some excellent cherries from the farmers' market in early May. They continued through the month, and as of last week a couple of vendors still had them but they were at their peak in May (at least from local sources).

                      Not sure anybody is interested now, but I just got a 2 lb. clamshell of Rainers at Costco Hawthorne for $8.99. The label said they were from Selah, Washington. They also had the red ones, but I later forgot to check out the size, cost and origin.

          2. About a month ago my sister gave me some Rainiers she got from a friend who goes down to San Diego and who got them at a Costco down there. They were good, but I didn't really pay attention to the label on the clamshell container.
