Cal Red Peaches
Frog Hollow Farm, Brentwood, CA
The beloved Cal Red is in a class by itself and is the "Oh my God" peach! A relatively new variety and a California native, the
Cal Red was bred by University of California botanist Claron O.Hesse in the mid-1960s. Aptly named for the Golden State, the
Cal Red is a beautiful golden peach marked with a gentle,sun-kissed blush.

O'Henry Peaches
Frog Hollow Farm, Brentwood, CA
Farmer Al's favorite peach to grill, the O'Henry has the flavor,
size, and crimson blush that makes for a truly memorable
peach. It's elegantly pointed shape slices to an attractive heart
shape for striking presentation.

Flavor King Pluot
Frog Hollow Farm, Brentwood, CA
A dark-skinned pluot with red flesh, it has an intense rich flavor combined with sweet, spicy tones that are reminiscent of the Santa Rosa. A nice acid bite and firm texture that softens beautifully as the fruit continues to ripen, the Flavor King is amazing out of hand and equally good for baking.

Summer Fire Nectarines
Frog Hollow Farm, Brentwood, CA
The Summer Fire has a firm meaty flesh that isn't as juicy as
some of our other varieties but is packed with a red wine intensity
that makes it a memorable and desirable nectarine. Often
with a deeper reddish hue than the Fantasia, the Summer Fire
is a variety that's worth the extra effort it takes to slice and pit
a clingstone: its warm yellow flesh is streaked beautifully with
red near the pit.

Crimson Royale
Frog Hollow Farm, Brentwood, CA
With an elongated shape similar to an apricot, the Crimson
Royal has a tangy red skin which contrasts deliciously with the
sweet orange flesh within.
