Washington cherries expected by Fourth of July

YAKIMA — The cold, wet spring last year delayed the cherry harvest in Washington past the Fourth of July.

Washington State Fruit Commission Chairman B.J. Thurlby told KNDO growers are hoping the nice weather holds. They expect to offer a stream of fresh cherries through the summer.
