Orondo Ruby Review

Our Orondo Ruby® cherry recently received an “A+ Outstanding” rating from a highly trusted consumer tasting panel, placing it in the coveted “Gold Winner’s Circle”. These consumer tasters had high praise for the Orondo Ruby: “Nice Flavor and Great Size”, “Delicious, refreshing, not too tart, and not too sweet”, “Perfect cherry”. Overall the panel appreciated the firmness of the Orondo Ruby, it’s large size and the uniquely balanced sweet/tart flavor profile. We agree completely

The Ruby is only available for a short time so pick them up today at these locations nationwide including our North Central Washington locations at 80 Mc Neil Canyon Rd, Chelan and Chelan IGA store.  

Chelan Fresh is partnering with our friends at the California Walnut Board to promote the Orondo Ruby. Head to our recipe page to see the new recipe from Patty Mastracco that pairs Orondo Ruby cherries and California Walnuts for a unique, out of the ordinary salsa to serve at your next summer event.
