This Week's Box: August 6, 2018

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. 

Opal Peaches
Frog Hollow Farm, Brentwood, CA
Yellow-fleshed peaches are more popular in the United States, but the allure of an excellent white-fleshed variety like the Opal can't be denied. Very low in acid, the Opal's sweetness comes across two-fold. A beautiful dessert peach, the Opal has a delicate pink blush to its skin and mild flesh with a hint of vanilla.

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.

Dapple Dandy Pluots
Frog Hollow Farm, Brentwood, CA
Playfully called the "dinosaur egg" pluot, the Dapple Dandy has marbled pink and green skin over delicate white flesh threaded with rose. Kids especially love this pluot for its distinctive coloration and the lack of tartness in the skin.

Crimson Royale Pluots
Frog Hollow Farm, Brentwood, CA
A new variety at Frog Hollow Farm, the Crimson Royale are full of sweet, juicy flavor. This is a large pluot variety with a smooth, crunchy texture and a very sweet orange flesh that suggests a complex mixture of apple and plum flavors.

Flavor King Pluots
Frog Hollow Farm, Brentwood, CA
A dark-skinned pluot with red flesh, it has an intensely 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.
