Dendy Cherries!

Our favourite cherries come from Dendy Orchards! They have been growing cherries in their orchard in East Kelowna since 1903, and today they ship worldwide! Cherry Season is in full swing, with many different varities ... Sonnet, Sylvia, Lapin, Sweetheart, Staccato, Sovereign ... but our favourite are the yellow Raja and Sultan cherries! Freshly picked every day, and unbelievably delicious!

Most of the cherries are late ripening large varieties, developed at the Summerland Research Centre.  Because of this, they come on the market later, usually around July 15th and are normally available as late as August 15th, as the picking cycles through the different varieties.  They are sought after by the Asian market and we are extremely fortunate to be able to buy them for a very reasonable price.  For instance, on the day we wrote this blog, both Lapin and Raja varieties are available for $2.50 per pound!

Check the out at http://www.dendy.ca or pick up a pound or two at the orchard at 3710 Pooley Road.  Yummmmm...
