Cheery cherries

Everyone knows what those small, reddish fruits with smooth skins are. They are even the name of a color. Cherry.

But what are those yellow fruits that share the same name? The Rainier cherry is recognizable by its golden/pink blushed skin color. It's a finely textured variety with firm, clear flesh and colorless juice and a very sweet, delicate flavor.

They have a shorter growing season, a shorter shelf life, and they also bruise easier. So pick out the prettiest of the bunch, and eat them quickly. Heaven can't wait.
