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.

Muscat Grapes
Frog Hollow Farm, Brentwood, CA    

These heirloom grapes have a stronger "grape" flavor than their table grape relatives. With their firm, tart skin and unctious sweet flesh they are a very special treat. The Muscat family is among the oldest of grape varieties. A gorgeous green to golden blush color gives way to a perfumey and sweet flavor. These grapes have seeds but the flavor is worth the effort.

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.
