Goldensweet Apricots
Frog Hollow Farm, Brentwood, CA
A small apricot that makes up for whatever it lacks in size with its rich flavor. Though we may bake pastries featuring other varieties, the Goldensweet is our variety of choice for our best-selling apricot conserve. Another California born and bred variety, it has a brilliant golden orange skin with a soft blush.

Red Top Peaches
Frog Hollow Farm, Brentwood, CA
The big, bold Red Top lives up to its name and is almost fully blushed red over yellow. One of the first freestone varieties of the season, its flesh is consistently firm and sweet. With its unique coloration and ease of slicing, the Red Top is especially well-suited for presentation.

Ruby Diamond Nectarines 
Frog Hollow Farm, Brentwood, CA
The Ruby Diamond is our best early-season nectarine in Farmer Al's opinion. It's a brilliantly crimson freestone with a very good eating quality. Juicy and firm it has the perfect blend of tangy and sweet that nectarine fans love. 

Santa Rosa Plums
Frog Hollow Farm, Brentwood, CA
Named for its birthplace, this plum was bred by the famed California horticulturist Luther Burbank in his Santa Rosa plant research center. Red-skinned with a purple bloom, the Santa Rosa's amber flesh gets flushed with red. This fruit is plump perfection with a bit of tartness in the skin that balances out the sweet and juicy flesh.
