⚠️Note: There is bound to have slight "rug burn"

So what’s the deal with the blemishes? Wind causes those “rug burns” on the skin. It’s purely cosmetic. Don’t shy away from tiny brown spots on the skin, either. Those are sugar spots. That’s a Skylar Rae with about 23 percent sugar content, which is supersweet. So don’t let those blemishes keep you away.

The Skylar Rae variety is more than a half-century old. It was developed at the University of Washington by one of the great stone fruit scientists, Harold Fogle, who crossed two very well-known red cherries, the Bing and the Van. But this cherry is a delicate thing. It hates the heat, the wind, the rain and birds. Growers have to pamper this fruit to get the size, color and flavor that have made this cherry so popular. And the cherries must be handpicked by their stems and then placed, not dropped, in the picker’s basket. A picker may return to a single tree up to seven times over the season.
