In 1952, Harold Fogle, a scientist working at Washington State University’s cherry-breeding program, decided to develop a cherry tree that would function solely as a pollinator. He crossed 2 dark fleshed varieties, the Bing and the Van. To his surprise, the tree yielded ivory-fleshed cherries…and not only that, they were spectacular: sweet, juicy, blush-skinned beauties. He named them after the local peak, Mt. Rainier, and they arrived on the market in 1960.
The flavor is out of this world, and to stop eating them is nearly impossible!
