Sweet Freckles™

by Anne Paddock

Sweet Freckles™ is the catchy name for one of summer’s newest delicacies: a northwest strawberry cherry that has the best attributes of a fruit (cherry) and a berry (strawberry).  With the firm and juicy texture of a black or Rainier cherry and the delicate sweet flavor of a sun-kissed strawberry, the Sweet Freckle™ is a winning combination for those who love sweet summer fruit.

Grown in Washington, Sweet Freckles™ are exceptionally large, extremely firm, and delightfully juicy with a deep pink or red color speckled with slightly white to creamy beige undertones.
