The 11th of July is Rainier Cherry Day.
It is celebrated as the end of the Rainier cherry season nears.
If you can get ahold of any where you live, you may wish to try them, if you haven’t yet. Owing to the yellowish coloration of these cherries, some people aren’t sure at first blush if they’re cherries at all or miniature plums — but the small fruit is incredibly sweet and is consequently becoming very popular in Japan, where people will pay a great deal per cherry for them.
With any luck, where you live you won’t have to pay quite that much.
Today is also the birthday of Antonio Vivaldi. If it’s been ages since you’ve listened to the “The Four Seasons” because it has been so overplayed at times, it may deserve a second listen.
CooksInfo first reported on the day in 2005. We believe that is the first year that it was observed / promoted.
