MOUNT VERNON – The Western Washington Fruit Research Foundation (WWFRF) presents its annual Cherry Sampling Day on Saturday, July 13 from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the Washington State University Washington Research and Extension Center, 16650 State Route 536 in Mount Vernon. Hosted in cooperation with WSU – NWREC, Cherry Sampling Day features classes and demonstrations on growing new varieties of cherries and pruning freestanding cherry trees and high intensity training systems featuring the V shaped Tatura Trellis. Discussions will include the latest research on the Spotted Wing Drosophila, now a threat to cherry fruit in western WA. Participants can pick and sample cherry varieties from the WSU research field trials, and take home cherries at a cost of $5 a bag. Event is free to members of WWFRF, and costs $15 per single or $30 per family. The Western Washington Fruit Research Foundation (WWFRF) (nwfruit.org) was created in 1991 to help fund Tree Fruit Varietal Research conducted at the Washington State University Research and Extension Center (NWREC). WWFRF volunteers are dedicated to supporting research and educating the public about the special fruit growing concerns of the Pacific Northwest region.
