This is a great time to visit the orchard for summer fruit. Everything is at its peak. Some days we sell out of an item, so call the orchard salesroom before you come. 256-437-9254. We are open seven days a week, 8:00 to 5:00.
This is what we have this week.
- Plenty of sweet yellow freestone peaches
A good supply of the more delicate white freestone peaches that have an almost floral hint of flavor
- Crisp Asian pears
- Purple, pink, and green seedless grapes. These have much more flavor than grapes from the store.
- Buckingham apples just started getting picked this week. They are a firm, crisp green eating apple with a red blush.
- Early Gold apples are good for applesauce or fried apples. I cook these half the amount of time as the later varieties.
We will soon start picking Gala apples and some other varieties, so watch for our posts.
We are currently going to these farmers markets. We often sell out, so come early!
