Photo detail

hood river valley cherries took a big hit this week with wet, warm weather for several days, which can split large numbers of cherries like the two at left. Early estimates show that between 30-50 percent of local Bing cherries (pictured here from a Tucker Road orchard) – the most widely grown variety in the region – were split due to the weather.
