BC cherries like all cherries grown in the world, rely heavily on Mother Nature to bring BC growers a bountiful cherry crop. Adverse weather (frost, cold temperatures, and rain) can delay the crop, while unseasonably warm weather will bring on the cherry harvest early. Many of the cherry varieties popular in Canada and around the world are included under our pages Early Cherry Varieties and Mid to Late Cherry Varieties. Most varieties were developed through cross-breeding programs at the Pacific Agri-Food Research Centre (PARC) in Summerland, B.C. Please contact us or visit the PARC website for more information.
