A partnership between Chinese online marketplace Tmall and Northwest Cherry Growers allows online shoppers in more than 30 cities in China to order U.S.-grown cherries and receive them within 72 hours after harvest. "These cherries are flown from Seattle or one of the airports on the West Coast straight to Shanghai. Once it arrives to Shanghai and clears customs, it is immediately packaged and then sent to clients throughout China," said NCG's international operations director, Keith Hu.
