Types of Pick-Your-Own Cherries

Here at Cherry Hill Orchards, a cherry farm near you, we grow two primary types of cherries: sweet cherries, perfect for snacking, and pie cherries, a bit more tart and ideal for baking.

When you come to our orchard during picking season, you'll be on the hunt for cherries that are firm and fully ripe. Cherries have a short season here in Lancaster, PA, so you'll want to hurry and get here when the cherry trees are ready!

A bunch of sweet cherries is still on the trees.

Sweet Cherries

If you enjoy snacking on sweet cherries, you'll want to visit us in mid-June for this delicious, seasonal fruit. We can't give exact dates because each year is slightly different based on changing weather patterns. However, when our sweet cherries are ready, you can visit us for cherry picking in Lancaster, PA!

Pie cherries on the tree are ready for picking.

Pie Cherries

Pie, or sour cherries, are used for baked goods, jams, jellies, and other tasty treats. These are available at the end of June and beginning of July each year, sometimes extending into mid-July. Cherries are a good source of vitamin C, fiber, and other nutrients, so picking ripe cherries is not only fun, but it's healthy for you!
