Plumcots are a hybrid fruit, the result of carefully controlled cross-pollination between plums and apricots. Different varieties of plums, crossed with different varieties of apricots have yielded a wide array of plumcot varieties, with more arriving every year.
White peaches and nectarines have several characteristics that set them apart from their yellow counterparts. They have a delicate white flesh and an incredibly sweet taste due to their low acid levels. Acid is what gives yellow peaches and nectarines
Flat peaches and nectarines are known by several names. We call ours Saturn and Galaxy. The technical name for this type of peach is peento which is derived from the Chinese word for peach, pan-tao. This group of varieties is naturally flat and donut-shaped.
Fresh apricots are an early summer treat, one that is growing rapidly in popularity. We are planting new varieties every year, eventually expanding apricot season throughout most of the summer months. Apricots have a sweet, rich flavor you’re sure to fall in love with.
Like plumcots, apriums are a hybrid fruit – a cross between an apricot and a plum, with a higher percentage of apricot characteristics. While apriums have the exterior appearance of an apricot, the flavor has perceptible plum qualities and a firm yet juicy flesh.
Yellow flesh peaches and nectarines are traditional summertime favorites. Sugar and acid in the fruit are responsible for the harmonious flavor balance of sweet and tangy. Many of our new varieties of yellow nectarines have lower acid levels, similar to white flesh varieties.
Although plums are believed to have originated in ancient China, most fresh plums are known as Japanese plums. Plums come in a wide array of skin and flesh colors, each with slightly different flavor profiles.
We may not be the biggest, but with one taste we think you’ll agree- we’re probably the best when it comes to growing blueberries. We did our homework and planted only the most flavorful varieties available.
Cherries are one of the most anticipated fruits of summer. Our cherries are plump, bite-sized jewels with a sweet, rich flavor. Because of our location near the southern end of California’s cherry-growing region, we are able to bring you the first cherries of the summer.
Satsumas offer a sweet burst of sunshine in the middle of winter. Our Satsumas ripen completely on the tree which brings out their rich, sweet, citrus flavor. Their loose, easy-peel skin and seedless sections make them a perfectly delicious easy to eat, healthy snack.
