Box of the week: September 9, 2019

August Fire Nectarines
Frog Hollow Farm, Brentwood, CA
A sweet and tangy late season yellow nectarine with deep red skin. An early fall favorite.


Cal Red Peaches
Frog Hollow Farm, Brentwood, CA
The beloved Cal Red is in a class by itself and is the "Oh my god" peach! A relatively new variety and a California native, the Cal Red was bred by University of California botanist Claron O.Hesse in the mid-1960s. Aptly named for the Golden State, the Cal Red is a beautiful golden peach marked with a gentle, sun-kissed blush.


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.
