Taste the World’s Best Cherries. When summer peaks, Northern Michigan bursts at the seams with delicious, juicy cherries—ripe for the picking. Traverse City, a.k.a. “The Cherry Capital of the World,” celebrates the year’s harvest with feasts and festivals; they even crown a Cherry Queen! For six generations, the world’s most coveted cherries grow on The Wunsch Family Farm. Enjoy a box of the sweet, delicate “Ulster,” the tart “Balaton” (sweeter than generic sour cherries and perfect for pies with no extra sugar), or a mix of both. Claim yours before peak season ends this summer!
