Ruby Diamond Nectarine
Frog Hollow Farm, Brentwood, CA
The Ruby Diamond is our best early-season nectarine in Farmer Al's opinion. It's a brilliantly crimson freestone with a very good eating quality. Juicy and firm it has the perfect blend of tangy and sweet that nectarine fans love.

Gold Dust Peaches
Frog Hollow Farm, Brentwood, CA
The Gold Dust is one of the first truly outstanding peaches of the season for eating out of hand. An heirloom variety, it is low in acid and smaller than most of our peaches. Its juicy, melting texture and sweetness makes it a favorite on the farm.

Santa Rosa Plums
Frog Hollow Farm, Brentwood, CA
Santa Rose plums are famous for their beautiful dark skin, yellow flesh and are delicious eaten fresh or canned. This variety was developed by Luther Burbank in, you guessed it, Santa Rosa so they are very well adapted for northern California.

Golden Sweet Apricots
Frog Hollow Farm, Brentwood, CA
Golden Sweet, a smaller apricot that makes up for whatever it lacks in size with its rich flavor. Though we may bake pastries featuring other varieties, the Golden Sweet is our variety of choice for our best-selling apricot conserve. Another California born and bred variety, it has a brilliant golden orange skin with a soft blush.
