Luscious June Fruits

Aloha Everyone,

During her bimonthly shopping trip at Trader Joe’s, our daughter-in-law was able to find fruits which are delighting our family.

Rainier Cherry Is a cross between bing and Van cultivars. Developed in 1952 at Washington State University, the name comes from Mount Rainier. Short season in grocery stores and short shelf life makes Rainier Cherries a rare and wonderful treat.

Bosch Pear traces its root to European pear from France. A cultivar of European varieties which is larger, longer and juicier, Bosch pears have rougher skin with no skin blemishes. This is one of J.J.’s favorite summer fruits.

Nectarine belongs to peach family. Large, white ripe nectarines to me are even preferable to peaches.

Blueberry & Blackberry are versatile fruits as they can be eaten by themselves or added to cereal, oatmeal, salad and yogurt. You can also add them to muffins, pancakes or as toppings for meat dishes.


Grape has been cultivated and wine-making in Egypt, Greece and Roman colonies dates back to circa 6,000 BCE. Grape is a true berry belonging to the same family as Blackberry, Raspberry, Strawberry and other berries.

Treat yourself to healthy fruits!

Aloha -- Cathi
