For the health and safety of everyone involved, the Five-State Cherry Commission meeting will be held via conference call on May 13. The Washington State Fruit Commission board meeting, which is usually held in conjunction with the cherry commission meeting, has been canceled for May. 

During the week of May 4, cherry growers in Washington, Oregon, Idaho, Utah and Montana are asked to watch for an email requesting orchard information and bloom updates. The commission will compile that information and distribute it with call-in instructions on May 12.

For additional information or any questions, please email Kathy Keeth:
