Summerset Peaches
Frog Hollow Farm, Brentwood, CA
Bright yellow with hardly any blush to speak of, the Summerset is a freestone that boasts a bold flesh that has a strong peach flavor. Sweet and juicy but with a tart, acidic bite, it makes for a nice contrast as a follow-up to the extremely sweet Cal Red. The Summerset has a nice firm texture that freezes well and is a favorite of ours to bake with.

August Fire Nectarines
Frog Hollow Farm, Brentwood, CA    
Elegantly shaped and rich in flavor, with deep red skin and warm orange flesh. A delightful late season nectarine. 

Emerald Beaut Plums
Frog Hollow Farm, Brentwood, CA
A freestone plum, the Emerald Beaut is a delicate green that turns golden with a hint of a blush. It has a firmer texture than the Santa Rosa with a crisp almost crunchy mouthfeel. One of our most hardy fruit, the Emerald Beaut just gets sweeter and sweeter without losing texture as it ages.

Red Flame Seedless Grapes
Frog Hollow Farm, Brentwood, CA
Enjoy these out of hand or try them in green salads, chicken salads, or fruit salads.
