SHARE UTAH’S SWEET-CHERRY CROP IS ANYTHING BUT PIT-IFUL

Utah's sweet-cherry crop is, well, cherry.

"It's by no means a bumper crop, thanks to some cold weather we had last spring, but it's a good crop," said Robert McMullin, chairman of the Utah Farm Bureau Fruits Crop Advisory Committee.Cherry season begins this weekend and will run 10 days to three weeks. Consumers should find select, sorted cherries in 20 pound boxes selling for about $1 per pound. Canning-grade cherries will be 50 cents to 80 cents a pound.
