(mid-August through September)
Table grapes are generally available around mid-August. We have several varieties - mostly white and red (IInterlaken, Canadice, and Reliance). This year we expect to also have some blue grapes (Thomcord and Mars).
We grow blueberries and blackberries. Blueberries are available mid-June through late July. Blackberries mid-July through early August. Since most of the berries are ripe prior to our going to the Farmers Markets, it is best to contact us to pick some up at the farm.
(Late-September until frost)
Asian Pears are available from late August to late September. Firm on the outside and juicy on the inside, they are always a big seller. Varieties include:
(late July through mid-August)
Apples are the primary fruit they we grow and sell. We concentrate on quality fruit that tastes great and is useful for fresh eating as well as cooking and baking. We also try to provide a wide selection of varieties, many of which you will rarely find in today's grocery stores. Although listed by season below, many varieties have long shelf lives and may be available beyond the end of the picking period.
We have a limited amount of peaches. But they are juicy and sweet - the essence of Summer. They are available from late July into mid-August. The primary varieties are Coralstar and Early Loring.
We grow both Japanese plums and European plums.
"Japanese plums" are generally round in delicious right out of hand. We have Red Ace (a Luther Burbank developed tree) and similar varieties. Availability is mid-August.
"European plums" are more oblong shape. They are often used for preserves, pastries, and prunes, but are also delicous out of hand. Our variety is Stanley and is available in the latter half of August.
