We picked the first kiwi fruit at the orchard this past week. At left you can see photos of kiwi blossoms on the vines this spring and a box of kiwi fruit at the fruit stand. If you click on the photos to look closely, you can see how the outer petals of the kiwi blossoms are brownish and fuzzy like the kiwi fruit.
We're taking names for a hoshigaki waiting list in case we have any hoshigaki left after filling all the orders we already have. Unfortunately, it's looking doubtful that we'll be able to get to the names on the waiting list, though.
Here's what we have for sale now at the fruit stand:
- Persimmons--hachiya (soft), fuyu (softening), vodka-treated hyakume, maru
- Mandarins--owari satsuma
- Asian Pear--okusankichi
- Apples--fuji, pippin, mutsu
- Winter Squash
- Pecans--in the shell
- Honey--raw, untreated honey from bees at our orchard
- Firewood--seasoned firewood (peach, plum, pear, persimmon)
- Gourds--for decorating
