This Week's Box: January 28th, 2019

Warren Pears
Frog Hollow Farm, Brentwood, CA
The Warren pear has a classic European texture — soft and juicy with a melting mouthful. It has a sweet flavor and avoids the typical grittiness found in most other pear varieties.

Tarocco Blood Oranges
Frog Hollow Farm, Brentwood, CA
A beautiful orange to deep red flesh is revealed when you slice open a Tarocco. The flesh of the blood orange is firm- er and more dense than an orange and its flavor is a little more tart. These beauties sweeten and darken in color as the season progresses.

Pink Lady Apples
Smit Farm, Linden, CA
Pink Lady Apples are a cross between the Golden Delicious and Lady Williams. They are a crisp and juicy apple with a tart finish. Pink skins and a creamy white colored flesh that resists browning make this an excellent apple for salads and slicing.

Hayward Kiwi - last week!
Chiechi Farm, Live Oak, CA
Originally known as the Chinese gooseberry due to its Chinese origins. Hawyward Wright, a New Zealand nurseryman propagated his plants by grafting, and they eventually became the preferred cultivar of growers due to their sweet flavor.

Clementines
Olsen Organic Farm, Lindsay, CA
Clementines are very sweet, juicy, easy to peel, and usually seedless, making them very popular with children and adults alike.
