The super-sweet taste is just as incredible as its namesake, Mount Rainier. It was originally produced by crossing the popular Bing Cherry with the age-old favorite, Van Cherry.
You won't want to miss growing the early-bearing, precocious Rainier Cherry (Prunus avium 'Rainier') in your backyard orchard. This is an outstanding sweet cherry tree that produces large, delicious yellow fruit with a beautiful dark red blush. Rainier is one of the world's sweetest yellow cherries and is in high demand by home gardeners. No wonder, as this low-maintenance tree is easy to grow. It's often called a "white cherry" for its creamy, white flesh, or a "blond cherry" for its yellow skin that's blushed red. Rainier is prized for its exceptionally sweet fruit.
