Iconsider Rainier Cherries to be one of the gourmet candies of the fruit world. They’re like an irresistible produce delicacy. Rainiers (aka Gold Cherries) are so plump, juicy and sweet that I have a hard time with self-control when it’s just me and a bowl full of them.
So, what’s the big deal? Rainier Cherries are super-sweet, juicy and bursting with bright flavor. This type of sweet cherry is characterized by yellow flesh, high sugar content and gold skin blushed with patches of bright red. The amount of redness is not an indicator of sweetness.
