From looking at the pictures, it’s difficult to tell the cherries apart. They also taste pretty much the same, although the queen anne cherries I purchased this year were more tart than the rainier, but they were each grown in completely different states. A lot of stores will use the names interchangeability. They are two different types of cherry trees that happen to produce a similar result. So what is the difference? Not much.
