YAKIMA — The cold, wet spring last year delayed the cherry harvest in Washington past the Fourth of July.
But a warmer spring this year has growers planning to have the harvest well under way by the end of June.
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.
