WA locals will be able to choose UPS ground shipping at checkout for roughly >$11.00 and receive their fruit box within 48 hrs of coming off the tree.
All orders are shipped Tuesdays + Wednesdays. Once harvest commences, we pick and pack all days of the week but Tuesdays + Wednesdays are reserved for online orders.
We set our shipping profile to make sure that no mistakes occur. This means that if you are located out of WA state (California for example), the only shipping options will be next day shipping.

All fruit packing for online orders occurs on Tuesdays + Wednesdays, regardless of order date. We harvest M-Su so your fruit will still arrive to you in >48 hrs from coming off the branch.
We use home compostable thermal liners in each box with 2-3 ice packs to keep your fruit cool. These thermal liners will dissolve in your sink under running water, and are made primarily of corn. Our boxes are made locally in WA state, and all recycled plastic clamshells are sourced from the US.
We currently use recycled plastic clamshells for blueberry orders which are recyclable. The plastic is necessary to protect the fruit, but we are working hard to find a better solution that is rigid enough to protect fragile varieties.
97% of our cherries go to retail markets like PCC, Central Co-Op, New Seasons Market, ect, and are packaged in home compostable bags. We decided to use some leftover plastic bags for online orders this season since we already had them on hand. Thank you for your patience as we work towards becoming the most earth friendly fruit delivery option available.
By 2022, all cherries will be packaged in home compostable bags.
Since our facility packages fruit that gets shipped all over the west coast, our safety standards are higher than that of retailers. Click here to see our current certifications.

Gorgeous, sweet, delicious cherries were delivered with care to our family in Texas. Customer service was excellent. We will definitely order more fruit from Chelan Beauty in the future.
Upon receipt of your cherries, stems were nice and green; crunchy good. But, cherries started deteriorating within 3 days causing me to toss out half of my order. I should order a smaller order next year to prevent waste.
Where I live, I have folks selling cherries "fresh off the farm" at practically every intersection. They are delicious and easy to find. That said, the flavor of these cherries from Chelan blew them out of consideration. Chelan's large, black, juicy cherries are delicious out of the box but also last in the fridge for up to about 10 days. We bought enough to make jam but they were too delicious and we ate all of them. So we ordered another batch to make jam but again, they were too delicious and did not make it into the pot. Maybe next year :-)
The cherries were so fresh! They arrived in perfect condition. I’m not shopping in grocery stores right now and being able to get my favorite fruit made me very happy! Thank you for a delicious product. I will definitely order from you again.
Hard to say enough good things about the cherries that were a treat we shared with friends- and saved some for some amazing jam. Shipped fast, arrived in perfect condition! Will order again soon
