The prices for fruit are:
- Dark cherries, $2/pound,
- Rainier cherries, $3/pound,
- Pie cherries, $2/pound,
- Apricots, $2/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.
