Lots of Peaches

We now have lots of peaches at the fruit stand, including a lot of "seconds". Seconds are second quality fruit, with blemishes or other problems, sold at a lower price. Seconds are a good deal if you plan to cut up the fruit anyway, like for baking or making jam. Many varieties of plums are at the fruit stand now, too. This weekend, we picked Gravensteins, the first apples of the year. Gravensteins are an early tart green apple with red streaks.

Here's what we have at the fruit stand now:


  • Peaches--yellow freestone varieties (Red Haven, Regina, Early Suncrest, Flavorcrest) and white varieties (Sugar Lady, Nectar, Koyama's donut peach)
  • Plums--Frontier, Santa Rosa, Satsuma, Black Amber
  • Apples--Gravenstein
  • Tomatoes (regular and cherry), Tomatillos
  • Eggplant--Japanese and Rosa Bianca
  • Beans--green string beans
  • Cucumber--Japanese, Armenian and lemon
  • Zucchini--Dark Green, Golden, Scallopini, yellow crookneck and yellow straightneck
  • Swiss Chard
  • Herbs--Basil (Genovase and lettuce leaf), Oregano, Rosemary
  • Garlic, Onions
We also have honey (made by bees at our orchard) and organic seedlings from Peas and Harmony.
