Chelan Fruit Cooperative recently announced the acquisition of the Orondo Fruit Company packing plant in Orondo, Washington, from the Griggs and Clennon families. Along with this purchase comes the opportunity to pack and market the Orondo Ruby cherry, as well as some of the state’s premier Rainier cherries, which are grown by the Griggs family.
This exciting new Orondo Ruby cherry was discovered in 2001 and boasts an early ripening, exceptionally sweet, juicy and delicious flavor, with tremendous consumer appeal. Chelan Fruit Cooperative will be packing and shipping the Orondo Ruby cherry in the summer of 2013.
