Holiday Gifts at the Fruit Stand

We have many things at the fruit stand that could be given as Christmas or New Year's gifts.  In the photo you can see hoshigaki (Japanese hand-dried persimmons) in a gift box and in a regular bag, calendula salve, jam made with fruit from the orchard and a pure beeswax candle.  We also have the 2014 Placer County Master Gardener's calender, two different persimmon cookbooks, the Art of Real Food cookbook by Joanne Neff and Laura Kenney.

Hoshigaki is a traditional Japanese New Year's gift.  You can also still order hoshigaki through mail order. If you'd like to pick up a large order of hoshigaki at the fruit stand, please call us ahead of time.
