    So here’s the thing. I like Ranier Cherries more than Bing, hand’s down. But are they grown in CA, or WA? or Both? Cuz whenever I go see my parents, there’s a cherry stand and they bring them in daily from eastern Washington. And they’re awesome to the nth degree. I have to tell my dad about the gout thing.

    Oh, btw, you’re awesome.

    Yes they are grown in both California and Washington. I have read that the ones in Washington are bigger and taste even better than the California ones. Delish!

    oh, btw, you’re awesome too.
