This Week's Box - May 21, 2018

Brooks Cherries
Frog Hollow Farm, Brentwood, CA
The Brooks are our first cherries off the tree but don't sacrifice taste, color or texture for their early arrival. They resemble the Bing with a more balanced sweetness in their dark, rich flesh.

Kettleman Apricots
Frog Hollow Farm, Brentwood, CA
The Kettleman is an aromatic apricot with a rich golden red color, smooth textured and the sweet-tart flavor that apricot fans love.

Hass Avocado
Bravacado, San Diego, CA
Creamy in texture, nutty in flavor, with a small to medium seed. The Hass skin is easy to peel and darkens from green to
purplish-black as it ripens.

Valencia Oranges
Sundance Organics, Oceanside, CA
Thin skinned, juicy and aromatic, with few seeds these make excellent juicing oranges or are great eaten out of hand.

Star Ruby Grapefruit
Jujube Farms, Lucerne Valley, CA
Under its thick, red-blushed skin you’ll find an aromatic, ruby red, juicy flesh with a perfect sweet-tart flavor.

Pixie Mandarins
Churchill - Brenneis Orchard, Ojai, CA
A unique variety of mandarin, the tough skin of this late season tangerine gives way to a delightfully robust flavor.

Fuji Apple
Cuyama Farm, New Cuyama, CA
Fujis are one of the sweetest variety apples around making them a household favorite.

Albion Strawberries
Sea Level Farm, Corralitos, CA or Tomatero Farms, Watsonville, CA
The sweet flavor and firm flesh make the Albion an excellent dessert or preserving berry. For longest life please store in the fridge and only wash right before eating.
