CARE AND HANDLING
Optimumum storage temperate for cherries is 32 degrees with 90 - 95% humidity. 
Typical shelf life is 10 to 14 days post-harvest for optimum quality due to their limited shelf life.
Cherries are odor-sensative and may have a tendancy to pick up off-flavors from shipping or storage with commodities that have strong odor
Rainier cherries typically have some light skin discoloration or brown spotting that indicates high sugar content.
