What's In-Season?

Apricots

Apricots tend to have yellow to orange skin and develop a red tint on the side exposed to the sun. Smooth and velvety to the touch, the skin covers a firm dense flesh that is both sweet and tart.

Pluots

A cross between apricots and plums, pluots skin colors vary from orange to green tints to dark black. The flesh can be orange, yellow, red and pink.

Plums

Rich in antioxidants, plums have a firm, slightly tart skin with a juicy flesh. The skin may be speckled red or almost black and the flesh can be amber or deep red.

White Peaches

White peaches are refreshing and sweet. The flesh is white and may contain red traces close to the pit. White peaches are distinguishable by their red tint and creamy background color.

Yellow Peaches

Naturally fat free, you can count on yellow peaches ranging in color from light orange to deep red and having a sweet flavor with fuzzy skin.

Yellow Nectarines

Yellow Nectarines have a smooth skin and are sweet and tangy. The skin is a deep orange to dark red and the flesh is yellowish orange. As they ripen they get juicier and sweeter.

White Nectarines

White Nectarines are less tangy than yellow nectarines, but are just as sweet. The skin is light pink or deep maroon and the flesh is bright white with traces of pink near the pit.

Watermelons

Red Seedless Watermelons contain very few seeds. Additionally, the seeds inside are small, immature and edible.

Cantaloupe

The best cantaloupes have rough yellow skins with a raised netting pattern. The flesh should be bright orange full of cream-colored seeds.

Strawberries

Strawberries are very succulent fruit that is bright red in color, and loved for its juicy texture and sweetness. Strawberries are a delicious food compliment or main feature.
