Washington State University’s Tukey Orchard launches its annual pick-your-own cherry sale this week. This fun event starts Friday, July 20, from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m., and continues on Saturday from 10 p.m. to 4 p.m.
Local residents wanting the freshest cherries available should bring their own containers for the fruit. Due to the popularity of the sale, and the availability of the cherries, Friday and Saturday probably will be the only days scheduled for the event. Cash and check are the only payment methods accepted; no credit or debit cards will be taken.
The prices for cherries are:
- Dark cherries, $2/pound,
- Rainier cherries, $3/pound,
- Pie cherries, $2/pound.
Currants, gooseberries and a limited supply of raspberries will also be available for $2.50 per pound. All orchard visitors are required to sign a risk and release form.
Tukey Orchard is located at the edge of the WSU Pullman campus, at the intersection of Airport Road and Terre View Drive, past the WSU Bear Center.
