What’s in Season?
Within the next few weeks, spring items will be finishing up due to the increasing temperatures. Items such as local asparagus, as well as special citrus varieties like Meyer lemons, cara cara oranges, and blood oranges are on their way out. In their place, we couldn’t be more excited for the return of stone fruits! We have received our first batch of peaches from Bakersfield with many more to come. Apricots are also here! Usually the first to be harvested, the Apache apricot is a nice medium size with soft skin and a small core. By May, the stone fruit harvests should be full underway including plums and nectarines. Stay tuned for updates about other summer fruits becoming available in our Produce News Section. Also, cherries will be available beginning first week of May!
