Shinko Asian Pears

Shinko Asian pears have a flesh that while still crunchy has a more melting mouthful. This exquisite combination of textures makes Shinkos especially enjoyable to eat of out hand. They are very sweet with a mild pear taste.

Warren Pears

The Warren pear has a classic European texture — soft and juicy with a melting mouthful. It has a sweet flavor and avoids the typical grittiness found in most other pear varieties. 

Fuyu Persimmon 
Frog Hollow Farm, Brentwood, CA    
Light and hardy, these bright and delicious fall fruits resemble a tomato in shape and size. Fuyu persimmons add a subtle sweetness to any salad or side dish; they are rich in vitamin A and a good source for vitamin C. First introduced to America by Japanese farmers who settled in California more than 100 years ago, persimmons have increasingly gotten more popular over the years.

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.
