Rainier cherries distinguish themselves from all other cherry varieties by the color of their skin and the unparalleled high sugar levels. Their coloring, layers of golden hues blushed with tones of pink and red, is unequivocally unique. The flesh is a pale golden color with red streaks near the skin and seed. The flavor of Rainier cherries is memorably sweet and low acid with a caramel-like finish on the palate.
