Celebrating National Cherry Month


Prosser, WA, February 1 – The beginning of February marks the start of National Cherry Month, and nothing could be better suited for Chukar Cherries – where locally grown cherries of the Pacific Northwest are turned into a wide array of artisan treats.  But cherries aren’t all Chukar, or February, has to offer!

National Dark Chocolate Day is February 1st.  With a wide selection of dark chocolates, there is something for nearly any palate.  Each Chukar chocolate is handcrafted, with a cherry, berry, or nut center and surrounded by custom blends of chocolate from the ultra-dark Amaretto Rainier to the ever-popular Cabernet Cherries.

Valentine’s Day on February 14th is the perfect opportunity for combining chocolates with gifts that accent the holiday.  In addition to an array of dark chocolates, there is also the quintessential favorite, the Cherry Heart Box.  Nestled within the patterned red box are four different flavors of chocolate covered cherries, from the dark – Amaretto Rainiers and Cabernet – to the milk – Cherry Bings and Classic Milk.  Chukar gifts are guaranteed to please that special someone with a large selection of treats to choose from.

Finally, February 20th is Presidents’ Day, and what better way to celebrate than with an essential cherry pie made from Chukar’s Sour Cherry Pie Filling?  Share with family in honor of George Washington, and rest assured no trees were harmed in the making of this delicious dessert.
