Cherry growers always say, “The only thing you can know for sure about a cherry crop, is that it will be completely unlike any other.” And with the growers’ decisions and Mother Nature alone, those possibilities truly are endless. But with the outbreak of a global pandemic during the critical preseason to the 2020 crop, it presented a wholly new scenario in which our growers, packers, shippers and retail partners would have to operate successfully.
Below is a captioned slideshow of selected charts which we at the Northwest Cherry Growers believe best illustrate the season. For more details, please visit our complete gallery of season review charts and our Cherries at Retail section. Combining brand new category research and a consumer survey of online and in-store shoppers, this research review shines a light on the changes at the shelf and forecasts what we expect to see in the seasons ahead.
