Indian Cling Peaches Ripe–Nectarines Gone

Nectarines are gone for the season.

Indian Cling Peaches–the “pickling peach”

The red-flesh Indian Cling peaches are ripe. We have a small crop of them, so we won’t have them for very long. Indian cling are known as the pickling peach, are firm, fit nicely into canning jars, and have a pretty red flesh. They are not freestone and stick to the seed. I don’t know if any will be packed for the farmers markets. Please call the orchard salesroom for availability. 256-437-9254

We still have yellow and white freestone peaches, Asian Pears, purple seedless grapes, and several varieties of apples. Honey Crisp apples are very limited. Call the orchard before you come.

Elli Anna and Ty, customer’s children

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
  • White Peaches

    A good supply of the more delicate white freestone peaches that have an almost floral hint of flavor

  • Asian Pears

    Juicy nectarines

  • 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.

Early Gold Apples and Nectarines!

Early Gold Apples

Crow Mountain Orchard salesroom has just started getting in some Early Gold apples and a few nectarines.

Early Gold are always the first apples to get ripe in the season. They are a summer green apple, crisp and a bit tart. They can be used to cook with, but only take about half the time to cook as later apples. They always remind me of the big green apple tree that was in my grandparents’ yard in West Virginia when I was a kid. We have them in the salesroom in the following sizes:

  • 1/2 peck      $6
  • 1 peck          $9
  • 1/2 bushel  $16

Nectarines are very limited right now. We have them in the salesroom for $7.50 for a 2 quart box.

We have plenty of peaches right now–Red Haven semi-cling yellow peaches and white freestone peaches. In the salesroom we have them in the following sizes:

  • 1 qt box        $4
  • 2 qt box       $7
  • 1/2 peck      $9
  • 1 peck          $13
  • 1/2 bushel $25

Sizes, varieties, and prices may vary at the farmers markets. For availability, please call the orchard salesroom between 8:00 and 5:00, 7 days a week, at 256-437-9254.
