What's at the Fruit Stand

At the fruit stand we have:

  • Fresh Persimmons--Hachiya (soft and hard), gyombo (soft), Fuyu, Maru and vodka-treated Hyakume
  • Kiwi--picked for the first time this week
  • Apples--Koyama's Granny Smith
  • Mandarins--satsuma (only a small supply left)
  • Quince--the last of the season
  • Vegetables--Jerusalem artichoke
  • Gourds--for decorations and crafting
  • Honey--from bees at our orchard
The last hard fuyu persimmons are starting to soften, so if you want hard ones, you'll need to get them soon. Some of the fuyu are still hard, but it's too late in the season for them to be crisp and crunchy anymore.

Above is a photo of kiwi fruit growing on vines at the orchard.
