We are at the beginning of the Santa Rosa Plum harvest. The flavor and fragrance of these heirloom plums is remarkable.  I guess that is why they have been so popular with people for a long time.  This fruit has definite flavor.  They are not only great for fresh eating but also make a spectacular jam.

     Many customers are patiently waiting for peaches. We hope to get them rolling into the farm stand soon.  We just can't hurry nature along or we will all be disappointed.  By the end of June I hope we will begin to harvest three yellow freestone peaches:  Red Haven, Regina and Flavorcrest.

When harvested, fruit come with a protective coating of yeast.
     While waiting for peaches, don't miss out on Royal Blenheim apricots.  They often have a hint of green on the skin. We find them to be tastier with a bit of texture.
