In 2012 FLCG designed its Montana Premium Cherry box lid. The design includes the state outline with indication where the cherry orchards are located. Retailers liked the design.

Dark Sweet cherries are sweeter than Tart cherries. Tart cherries are usually smaller and more vibrant red in color than the mahogany color the Sweet cherry exhibits when perfectly ripe.
   
Flathead Cherry Growers, Flathead Lake Montana Cherries Grow In Clusters
Cherries grow in clusters and the "leaf to cherry ratio" is very important. Proper pruning is very important to obtain more and bigger leaves which, in turn, help produce larger cherries. Trees with a low "leaf to cherry ratio" usually produce smaller fruit.
