As the season goes on so does are volume in Peaches which headline our Soft Fruit late program.
Just imagine a sweet full flavor juicy peach and now take off that fuzz. That’s what our nectarine lineup is like. Starting in May and continuing on when most shippers have stopped in the fall, it is our nectarine farms in a small micro climate in the Central Valley that allows us to harvest fresh Nectarines two weeks later than most. Available in white and yellow fleshes our Nectarine line-up has quickly become one of the best commodities we offer.
We have a huge array of Plums to offer into the market: Red Skin, Dark Skin, Green Skin, Red Flesh, Yellow Flesh, Mottled or not. All of our Plums are firm in texture and juicy in the interior. We offer Plums May through Thanksgiving with our Green Plum program in August becoming a customer favorite.
This “super fruit” that is well known for its health benefit through its high level anti-oxidants helps headline our fall program. This fruit is used in a numerous amount of ways for juicing, topping or just breaking them open and eating those arils. Our season will start in the fall and run all the way through the winter.
Our highly touted Hachiya program will get off to an early start when most other shippers our two weeks away. The baking persimmon, Hachiyas will run from early October and will extend through the Thanksgiving and Christmas rush. Fuyus are the flat shaped variety that are eaten like an apple. Whether it is the cooking or the eating persimmon variety our extended availability is rivaled by none.

This items will start in the fall and sometimes be available early into January.
