Blooms is The Premier Source for Delicious, Orchard-Fresh Cherries Delivered Directly to Your Doorstep

From humble beginnings in Italy, the family crossed the Atlantic and planted roots in the United State, first settling in Massachusetts. During the elder Chinchiolo's time on the East Coast, he worked diligently to establish the family as a broker and seller of fruits for export, among the commodities were cherries, grapes, figs, and pears. In addition to exporting the produce, the family saw the beauty in farming the supply and, after a few short years in Massachusetts, moved again to settle in the Central Valley of California known for its excellent farming conditions. With four generations of farming expertise in the heart of California's Central Valley, you could say that the Chinchiolo family knows a thing or two about growing excellent produce.

  • Japanese cherry blossom trees don’t produce fruit and, instead, are mostly ornamental.
  • While there are over 1,000 (yes, 1,000!) cherry varieties, they are categorized into two main types: sweet and tart. And, of these, only about 20% are used in commercial products.
  • Sweet cherries are most commonly grown in California, Oregon, and Washington and Oregon while the tart varieties are mostly grown in Michigan and Wisconsin.
  • Tart cherries are more often used in baking because they hold their shape better than their sweeter cousins and the tartness allows bakers to modify recipes for preferred level of sweetness.
  • Cherries are believed to have been around since the Stone Age! Archaeologists have discovered fossilized cherry pits in prehistoric caves throughout Europe and Asia.
  • Cherries plantings are believed to have spread through Europe thanks to Roman soldiers. Cherries were ration to Roman soldier and, as they traversed the land, their discarded pits germinated into trees
  • While several varieties were already present in North America, including black cherries, many other cherry varieties first made their way to the United States with Europeans settling the land in the 1600s.
