My Story

5 River Islands™ cherries are grown in California’s Delta region, where 1,100 square miles link nearly 60 islands and more than 700 miles of waterways to form one of the most unique farm grounds in the country. Five rivers flow through the Delta, including the mighty Sacramento and San Joaquin Rivers, and together they inspired the name of these special cherries.

The Delta region has a flat terrain and medium climate of warm days and cool nights that is perfect for sweet cherries. The Lapin cherry variety loves it here, so that’s what we grow, and what you’ll find in our 5 River Islands™ packs. Hand-picked at just the right moment, we know you’ll adore the sweet, summertime flavors of 5 River Islands™ cherries.

My Story

The warm days and cool nights are combined with an abundance of clean water and flat terrain which contribute to the high quality, dessert flavored cherries. Premium varieties include Lapin, Coral, and Bing which are hand-picked at perfection and carefully packed for you to enjoy in specially marked 5 River Islands™ packages in late May and early June.
