We’re not joking when we say that Skylar Rae® brand cherries are the sweetest cherry you’ll ever eat. They come off the tree with high sugars, ranging from 23-25 Brix, and are also very crisp (the firmest cherry we grow, in fact).
Biting into a Skylar Rae® cherry is like biting into your favorite hard candy – you get the crunch followed by syrupy sweetness and juice. It’s best to enjoy that special flavor for a fresh snack, or in a salad. Don’t bake with this one!
Is It In Season
Discovering a unique cherry by chance on a farm is a rare natural event, but that’s just what happened back in 2004 for the Toftness family of Wentachee, WA and Tip Top Orchards. Usually these chance sightings don’t produce a cherry you can grow at scale, but this special cherry was different.
Its parents are still unknown today, but we do know Skylar Rae® cherries are genetically different from Rainier and other sweet cherry varieties. The brand name behind this special cherry was chosen to honor Skylar Rae Toftness, the late daughter of Troy and Kim Toftness.
