Strawberries are officially gone for the season, wow, didn’t that seem fast?
Sweet Cherries: We will have sweet cherries for probably only a few more days. We will have them picked for sale on the market, since we are not sure how fast they will go, call first to make sure we have them before you drive out. 269-244-5690.
U-Pick Sweet Cherries: We had a lot of people out over the weekend to pick. The dark black cherries that are left are in the tops of the trees. Since we have 20 – 30 foot trees, it is very difficult to pick and no longer reachable even with a step ladder. There are some yellow cherries that you can get to with a step ladder. So….unless you have a very tall ladder and are good at moving it around in a tree, we would not recommend trying to come pick them. Thanks to everyone who came out to pick. Everyone who did got some beautiful cherries this year!
Sour Cherries: We have some sour cherries now on the market for sale by the quart. These too will probably only last a few days. They are $4.00 a quart.
U-Pick Sour Cherries: We will open the U-Pick Sour cherries on Tuesday, June 12th. We do not have a very large crop of them due to the earlier freeze. Depending on how many people come out on Tuesday, they may only last a day or so given the small crop. They will be $1.00/pound to pick.
These 90 degree days are finishing off the cherry crop quicker than all of us would like.
Beth and everyone at Corey Lake Orchards
