While in the market yesterday, I went to the fruit section to see if they 
had grapes I like. The cherries, the yellow/pinkish ones I thought were 
Queen Anne's are not. They call them Rainier cherries. So I decided to do 
some cherry research. (my thing is researching on the web)! Anyhow, I found 
Mount Rainier cherries, but they are red with an occasional splash of 
yellow. Another place describes them as yellow with a red blush, which is 
what mine look like. Another grower calls them just Rainier, and the 
picture is exactly what mine are. The only reference I can find to Queen 
Ann refers to Royal Ann. This has been educational for me!! Oh, BTW, the 
Rainiers are 5.98 a pound. Heh! Bings are now 3.98 a pound. But then, I 
live in the Ozarks where tiny artichokes are 1.99 a piece and tiny 
avacadoes are 1.29+ a piece!!
