Chukar Cherries

Fans of Chukar Cherries might have no idea that their favorite source for dried Bings and Rainiers was almost foiled by science. Studies in the 1980s insisted that cherries couldn’t be dried without added sugar or preservatives, but Pam Montgomery was certain she could pull it off. She founded Chukar Cherries, where she proved her theories right with batch after batch of delicious dried fruit. Many years and confections later, Chukar Cherries still enjoys mouthwatering success.
