Santa Rosas and White Nectarines

We now have Santa Rosa Plums at the fruit stand.  Santa Rosas are flavorful and juicy plums that have a memorable, sweet and tangy taste.  The peach varieties we now have are Bon Jour, Sweet Crest, June Crest, Flavor Crest and Regina.  All of these are yellow peaches, but some of the white varieties should be ready by the end of the month.  We do have Jade white nectarines, though.  This year's crop of  Jade has grown well, without a lot of the scarring and other issues we usually see.  We picked some of the first crop of figs was this week, so we now have some in the fruit stand.  The first crop at the beginning of the summer is usually lighter than the second which we expect in August.
