Raspberries
Bluerries
We had a “great” season. The bushes were healthy, tall and loaded with berries and flowers. Our everbearing raspberries are delicious and nutritious, packed full of ellagic acid, vitamins, antioxidants and fiber. We picked from mid-June and will continue to pick through to early October.
Available June
Blueberries
Bluerries
Our organically grown Blueberry Patch has six varieties planted. This range of variety provides us with ripe delicious blueberries early (late June/early July) in the season straight through until late (late August/early September). Our blueberries are excellent medium to large berries with long shelf life and great taste.

July

Blackberries
The soft fruit is popular for use in desserts, jams, seedless jelly, and sometimes wine. It is often mixed with apples for pies and crumbles. Blackberries are also used to produce candy.

August

Rainier CherriesCherries
The Rainier are thick with white cherry blossoms in spring as well and produce creamy-yellow & pink bicolored cherries of the sweetest kind.
Our 2016 Cherry season will be earlier than 2015 and we should be picking mid-June.

June

Bing Cherries
The Bing are thick with white cherry blossoms in spring and produce large in size, slightly heart-shaped cherries with a deep maroon color, and a delicious, sweet wonderful flavor.

Bartlett Pears

Bartlett pears are the only pears that have a “true” pear (or pyriform) shape and taste. The fruit’s color brightens as it ripens, which is a characteristic unique to Bartlett pears; most pears do not change color when ripe. At harvest they are a vibrant green, changing to yellow when ready to eat. When unripe, the texture can be gritty. The Bartlett pear has a distinct flavor and sweetness, its white flesh has a smooth, buttery texture..
We generally harvest our pears in late summer.

September

Anjou Pears
Anjou pears are a medium-sized variety, with a slightly egg-shaped appearance. The green-skinned pears have a short, squat body and almost no neck typical of a pear. The bright green skin is often blushed with a rose flush on the side most exposed to the sun while on the tree. The flesh of the Anjou pear is bright, white and dense with a slightly sweet flavor with subtle notes of citrus. Anjou pears are very juicy when ripe. Anjou pears remain green when ripe, with only a slight change in their bright green-colored skin. Press gently against the stem end of the fruit to test for ripeness. Anjou pears ripen from the inside out; if the flesh gives slightly, the pear is ready to eat.
We generally harvest our pears in late summer.

Late September

Prune Plums

Prune plums are a European plum noticeably different than other plums in the market distinguished by their smaller size, and oval rather than round shape. More dark blue than purple in color with a yellow-green interior, prune plums are a free stone (pit easily removed from flesh) fruit low in water content and high in sugar. Perfect for baking or drying.

September

Granny Smith Apples
Tangy, tart and oh-so tasty, Granny Smith apples are a gorgeous colour of green. They have a slighter harder texture and are just a little less sweet than other apples.

Early October

Golden Delicious
Tasty, bright golden fruit. Enjoy crisp, juicy apples fresh off the tree or for cooking.

Early October

McIntosh
Medium size with irregular round shape, it’s a green apple with a red splash and white, juicy flesh. Mildly tart, with sweetness as it ripens. Excellent for sauces, pies or eating fresh.

Early October
