Box of the week: October 7, 2019

Autumn Flame Peaches
Frog Hollow Farm, Brentwood, CA
The Autumn Flame is naturally more firm but softens beautifully if aged properly on the kitchen counter. It becomes almost as meltingly soft as a Gold Dust if left to enjoy until the skin begins to wrinkle slightly.

Flavor Fall Pluot
Frog Hollow Farm, Brentwood, CA
Flavor Treat is the last pluot variety to ripen in our orchard. They are dark-skinned with a pale, tender, yellow flesh.

Shinko Asian Pears
Frog Hollow Farm, Brentwood, CA
They have a flesh that while still crunchy has a more melting mouthful, making the texture combination when eaten out of hand spectacular. Very sweet with a mild pear taste, their round shape and beautiful golden hue make them ideal for presentation with a distinctively Autumnal feel.

Warren Pears
Frog Hollow Farm, Brentwood, CA
The Warren has a classic European, soft texture, which is juicy and very sweet and silky. It's never caught on commercially because of how difficult it is to grow. In fact, we're one of two commercial growers of Warren pear.

Pomegranate
Frog Hollow Farm, Brentwood, CA
Native to the regions of Persia and the Western Himalayan range, pomegranates have been cultivated for several millennia. When sliced open a beautiful array of jewel-like seeds are displayed. The aril is the colorful casing that surrounds the edible seeds and has a sweet tart flavor.
