Pixie Tangerine

A unique variety of mandarin, the pebbly skin of this late season tangerine easily gives way to a delightfully robust flavor.

Strawberries
Tomatero Organic Farm, Aptos, Ca

Spring has truly arrived now that the weather is warm and dry enough for strawberries. There is a reason California has such great strawberries: they are native here, especially to the coastal areas along the coast here in the Bay Area.

Navel Oranges
Smit Farm, Linden, CA

California Navel Oranges are considered to be the best Navels for eating out of hand. They have a thick skin that is easy to peel, are seedless and have a sweet flesh that makes them a perfect snack.

Fuji Apples
Cyuama Orchards, Cuyama, Ca
Fujis are a cross between Red Delicious and Ralls Janet, an heirloom apple dating back to Thomas Jefferson. They are one of the sweetest variety apples around making them a household favorite.This specific variety is a stripey late season cultivar called Nagafu.

Pinkerton Avocados
Del Rey, Fallbrook, Ca

Pinkertons are a unique variety of avocado identified by their elongated shape. Like all avocados they are technically a berry that is related to our native Bay Laurel trees. Pinkertons have great flavor and texture. They do not fully ripen on the tree so farmers are able to store them in the orchard and harvest late in the season.
