Ranking Fresh Produce Crops

No, those aren’t banner years for Cabernet Sauvignon’s, or Zinfandel’s, or some other varietal (I’m not much of a wine drinker, actually).

They’re bumper crops for produce like cherries (OK, I made up all those dates, except for this year).

Personally, I always thought that there should be a way for “foodies” to track which years were superb, and which ones mediocre.

Clearly, for cherries and peaches, 2010 is the former!

P.S.: according to the produce guy at Whole Foods, the secret is where the produce comes from. His theory, at least, is that Washington state produces juicier cherries and peaches because the nights are cooler than in California (where more of the fruit comes from).
