Box of the Week: September 16, 2019


Summerset Peaches
Frog Hollow Farm, Brentwood, CA
The Summerset matures into a very large peach, some weighing in at more than two pounds! 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.

Flavor Heart Pluots
Frog Hollow Farm, Brentwood, CA
The Flavor Heart gets its name from its distinctively tapered shape. Its meaty, pale yellow flesh is very low in acid and the sweetness and color contrasts strikingly with its dark purple almost black skin. The Flavor Heart is quickly becoming a favorite amongst our pluot fans.


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 that is reminiscent of our pluots. Among our more hardy fruits, the Emerald Beaut just gets sweeter and sweeter without losing texture as it ages.

Hosui Asian Pear
Frog Hollow Farm, Brentwood, CA
The Hosui is popular in both Japan and in California. 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.
