Bing Cherries from Christopher Ranch in Gilroy

Thursday afternoon on my way back to the City, I pulled off 101 to stop at the cherry stand for Christopher Ranch on the southside of Gilroy.

Finally, some good quality Bing cherries this season! These were so plump and fresh, picked from the ranch’s own orchards. And, a good deal too at $5 for a boxful of nearly two pounds. A few were a bit soft and some were on the light side, but overall, quite good. Organic cherries are also available for $7.

Fresh garlic and Christopher Ranch packaged products are also available for sale here.

The stand is on the eastside of the highway 101, just south of the junction with highway 25. There’s no merge or turn-off lane here, but a wide shoulder, and the sight lines for approaching traffic are unobstructed for a safe return to the highway.
