Meet Skylar Rae® , the sweetest cherry you’ll ever eat. The Toftness family discovered a new cherry variety growing by chance on a tree at their Tip Top Orchards in Wenatchee, WA back in 2005. A rarity in nature, this chance variety with unknown parentage produced a beautiful bi-colored cherry with incredible firmness and high sugars.
This discovery came shortly after the family had suffered the unimaginable loss of their infant daughter, Skylar Rae Toftness. When it came time to trademark a name for this special cherry, everyone blurted out “Skylar Rae,” knowing it was the perfect way to carry on her namesake.
Exterior: Golden yellow background with a partial to full orange-red blush
Interior: Very firm and smooth flesh that is nearly colorless
Experience: Very sweet and exceptionally crisp. With high sugars ranging from 23-25 Brix, Skylar Rae® is the sweetest cherry you’ll ever eat.
Enjoy the super-sweet Skylar Rae® cherries as a fresh snack, in salads, or as a garnish for summertime drinks.
