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.

Pink Lady Apples

Frog Hollow Farm, Brentwood, CA

Pink Lady Apples are a cross between the Golden Delicious and Lady Williams. They are a crisp and juicy apple with a tart finish. Pink skins and a creamy white colored flesh that resists browning make this an excellent apple for salads and slicing.

Granny Smith Apple

Fruitilicious Farm, Santa Cruz, CA

A bright greenskinned apple with a tart finish. Named after Maria Ann Smith who propegated the apple from a seed in Australia. They are a favorite for baking and salads.

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.

Hayward Kiwi

Chiechi Farm, Live Oak, CA

Originally known as the Chinese gooseberry due to its Chinese origins. Hawyward Wright, a New Zealand nurseryman propagated his plants by grafting, and they eventually became the preferred cultivar of growers due to their sweet flavor.
