/ BC Cherries
...world famous bc cherries
Canadian cherries are world famous for their exceptional size, flavour, sweetness and high quality. With new export markets opening up each year, trying to fill the burgeoning global demand has been a tough job for BC cherry growers. There has been a rise of new machinery in the past couple of years, to help modernize packing facilities and increase cherry production.
The good news is...the BC cherry harvest continues to outpace expectations as new trees and orchards reach maturity. New plantings of bc cherry varieties, also allow growers to extend their the harvest. These investments in agriculture and new technology are necessary to remain competitive and continue to deliver a premium product. Although one of the most expensive costs is still picking, fresh cherries continue to be hand-picked to ensure maximum care is taken and ensure best quality.
