Flathead cherry crop expected to be later this season

May, 19th, 2019

According to Bruce Johnson, President of the co-op’s board of directors, the event serves as a springboard for the coming season. Growers learn from specialists who speak at the event. They also look at how the growing season is going in Washington, which is a good indicator of what this year’s cherries will look like. 

Johnson said cherry growth will be a bit behind schedule this year, but overall the prognosis for the growing season looks good. Abnormally cold temperatures in February worried growers but didn’t have a significant negative impact on growth. 

In Washington the growing season has been successful, but a bit behind schedule, Johnson said.  Flathead growers will likely see similar conditions. Normally, cherry growers start picking in mid July. This year it will likely be later.
