2011 California Cherry Harvest Begins

CFBF.  April 2011. Cherry farmers in the southern San Joaquin Valley started harvesting their crop on Sunday. That means retail stores should have good supplies of California-grown cherries in about three weeks. The California Cherry Advisory Board predicts a decent crop. Cool temperatures in the northern San Joaquin Valley may have reduced crop size a bit, but the board says the trees appear to have average-sized crops.
