So, Steena and Ebony Rose Walk into an Office...

As summer switches into high gear, so has our variety of fruit from The Pike Place Market. So much so...we added an extra fruit to this week's deliveries. Two standout fruits you'll want to try are Ebony Rose Plums and Steena Dark Red Cherries. Ebony Rose Plum "Ebony Rose" is a large reddish-black plum with very juicy, yellow flesh. Unlike most of the other Japanese varieties, its pit is "freestone," which means that it separates easily from the flesh. Most other Japanese plums are "clingstone," meaning the flesh clings to the pit. "Ebony Rose" is a midseason plum.

It's "Rainier Cherry Month!"

In celebration of "Rainier Cherry Month," we have included organic local Rainier Cherries in this week's delivery. Rainier is a cultivar of cherry.

'Rainiers' are considered a premium type of cherry. They are sweet with a thin skin and thick creamy-yellow flesh. The cherries are very sensitive to temperature, wind, and rain. About 1/3 of a 'Rainier' cherry orchard's crop is eaten by birds. The standard root stock for the 'Rainier' cherry is the Mazzard cherry, a wild or seedling sweet cherry used as grafting stock.
