Door County Cherry Blossoms

Plan for Cherries

No Door County vacation is complete without a visit to a cherry orchard. While the blossoms have peaked and now the ground is littered with white pedals, the fruit remains and is growing fast. The Cherry Tracker tells us that the best time for picking is mid July to mid August, but experience shows that that timeframe can vary by a week or two. Get your plans in the books for cherry picking!
