TIME FOR MANDARINS

        Sad to say, fall fruits are disappearing from our farm stand.  Citrus season is developing.  We now have mandarins from Otow Orchard.  By February we should have Blood Oranges and Navel oranges.
       We are still selling soft Hachiya persimmons and there is frozen pulp in our freezer.    Also from the fall season are Okusankichi Asian Pears.
       We will be finished squeezing hoshigaki this week.  Then they are headed to the freezer for curing.   Then we will pull them out and finish sorting and packing them as requested.  If you want to mail order hoshigaki please down load the order form from the home page of this web site.  Hoshigaki is also available at the farm stand.
        Out in the orchard the leaves have dropped and birds have gleaned any fruit left on the trees.  We are able to clean the trees and remove diseased leaves and mummy fruit.  During dry periods we are pruning trees. Signs of the next crop are beginning to show up.  We see spots of blossoming pink and white ume flowers in the orchard.  The bees are gleaning nectar when the weather permits.

WHAT'S IN THE FARM STAND:
Hoshigaki
Soft hachiya persimmons
Okusankichi Asian pears
Satsuma mandarins
Pecans
Bees wax candles
Persimmon cook books
Calendula salve and lip balm
