Orchard in Bloom

A lot of the orchard's trees started blooming this past week.  White and pink flowered plum and peach trees are spread throughout the orchard.  The apple, pear and persimmon trees will be later to bloom, just as their fruit is ready later, also.   The fruit stand is still open regular hours, and people are free to come visit the orchard any time we're open.  It's a nice time to come out and take a walk.  The fruit stand produce variety is at its minimum because only a few fruits are in season.

Here's what's at the Fruit Stand now:

  • Grapefruit--white variety
  • Oranges--navel
  • Lemons--Meyer, Eureka
  • Asian Pear--okusankichi (small quantity left)
  • Kiwi--small quantity left
  • dehydrated fruit from our orchard
  • Eggs
  • Honey--raw, untreated honey from bees at our orchard
  • Firewood--seasoned firewood (peach, plum, pear, persimmon)
