Cherry Varieties

Cherry Varieties at Ambers Cherry Farm & Orchard Map


Ambers has different cherries
 ....cherry varieties not only to suit various customer tastes, but for pollination requirements and to give you ripe cherries over a longer harvest period. For example, Early Burlat, Tartarian, Andy G's Son, Tieton, Utah Giant, Black Pearl, Burgundy Pearl, Chelan and Brooks cherries are ripe the end of May and early June. Bings, Radiance Pearl, Ebony Pearl, Coral, Tulare, Glenare and Vans are ripe a week later. Rainier, Lapins, Stella, Santina and Sandra Rose ripen toward the middle/end of June.

Ambers has 21 cherry varieties because of you..the cherry customer. Since 1997 we have planted varieties specifically requested by customers. Bing, Rainier were the most popular...by far followed by Brooks, Tieton and Utah Giant. Recently customers were raving about the "big dark cherries" at Costco called Chelan, a new cherry out of Washington State. We have planted 36 of them. Customers were curious about the new cherries out of Cornell in New York called "pearls"...Ebony, Burgundy, Radiance and Black Pearls. We planted a sampling of them as well. As customers taste preferences change, we try to change as well. For example, Utah Giants have recently become a popular early cherry and we have since planted 75 Utah Giant trees. Customers also prefer early red sweet cherries and we have converted 40% of our inventory to early cherries..Brooks, Glenare, Tulare, Chelan, Black Pearl, Burlat to name a few... Bottom line..You get the cherries YOU want....That is Amber's marketing philosophy.
