This Week's Fruit: October 29, 2018

Warren Pears

Frog Hollow Farm, Brentwood, CA

This is Frog Hollow Farm's signature pear and for good reason. Too difficult to grow for most farmers to consider it's never caught on commercially but Farmer Al has never shied awayfrom putting the time and effort into a fruit that tastes so good. With a classic European texture, very soft and juicy with a silky sweetness that avoids the typical grittiness found in most pears.

Fuyu Persimmons

Frog Hollow Farm, Brentwood, CA

The Fuyu has a crisp texture with a rich honey sweet flavor. They have a beautiful orange to red hue when ripe, often with tiny brown speckles on the skin. They can be eaten out of hand with skin on or peeled.

Flavor Treat Pluots

Frog Hollow Farm, Brentwood, CA

These large, late-season pluots are reddish-purple over tender, yellow flesh that’s extremely juicy. One of our last stone-fruits of the season, the Flavor Treat are a welcome reminder of the height of summer.

Pomegranate

Frog Hollow Farm, Brentwood, CA

With only a handful of pomegranate trees in our orchard, our pomegranate season is a short one. These beautieswalk a fine line between sweet and tart, and are bursting with antioxidants. Kids often love picking apart the "seeds" to eat, but the trick we like is breaking apart a pom in a bowl of water--the edible bits will sink to the bottom, while the white pith-like parts float to the top.

Fuji Apples

Frog Hollow Farm, Brentwood, CA

Fujis are a cross between Red Delicious and Ralls Janet, an heirloom apple dating back to Thomas Jefferson. They are one of the sweetest variety apples around making them a household favorite.sists browningmake this an excellent apple for salads and slicing.
