Leading US grower-packer-shipper increases production capabilities by 30 per cent as it gears up to harvest Northwest’s “longest and largest” cherry crop 

Superfresh Growers anticipates its upcoming cherry season will be “the longest and largest” in the Pacific Northwest region, with the company expecting cherries to be available as early as late May and to extend well into August.

Superfresh Growers said its production base is noteable for its geographical diversity, with orchards spanning from the Canadian border down to Hood River in Oregon. According to the company, this diversity creates an ideal environment for cherry cultivation and helps to protect it from poor region-specific weather conditions. This strategy also allows Superfresh Growers’ orchards to benefit from varying microclimates and soil conditions. 

“Superfresh Growers is proud to uphold our position as the Northwest’s longest and largest cherry crop for the past two seasons,” said Destiny Nash, cherry sales lead. “Anticipate nothing less as we gear up for another successful harvest.” 

Last year saw Superfresh Growers add a third state-of-the-art packing facility, which has increased production capabilities by 30 per cent, according to Nash. 

“The addition of the third packing line last year optimised our turn-around times from orchard to retail partners,” she said. “With a notable 30 per cent increase in production capabilities, we are poised for continued growth and success.” 

The company will continue to offer a range of varieties from classic dark sweet cherries to Rainier, with both organic and jumbo, branded as Super Cherry, versions of each. The Super Cherry will be available in both random-weight bags and clamshells.
