Cara Cara Oranges
Grower: Ken’s Top Notch Produce

Description: The Cara Cara orange is similar in appearance to the conventional orange, which has a smooth outer skin and bright orange color.

The inner flesh of the Cara Cara orange is seedless and offers a flavor that is a cross between the tangerine and grapefruit.

Fuyu Persimmon
Grower: Beck Grove

Description: Though Fuyu persimmons command an edible advantage over other persimmon counterparts, they do share common characteristics with other persimmon varieties. They have a rounded ovate beefsteak tomato shape with an indented leaf on their stem end, pumpkin colored tones in both skin and flesh and when ripe, possess layers of flavors reminiscent of pear, dates and brown sugar with a cooling finish. Their texture varies from crisp and succulent when young and perfectly ripe to more tender as they mature.

Black Arkansas Apple
Grower: Penryn Orchards

Description: The skin of the Black Arkansas apple is waxy and vivid red to dark purple in color. Its flesh is golden hued and juicy with a fine-grained and crisp texture. Its highly aromatic and sweet-tart flavor mellows and becomes more palatable with storage. The flesh as well will soften with storage, when first harvested the Black Arkansas apple is extremely hard, almost to the point that many would find it difficult to eat out of hand.

Tsuro Noko Persimmons
Grower: Penryn Orchards

Description: Perfectly ripe Tsuru Noko persimmons are petite, semi-tender, elongated, conical-shaped with a warm orange colored thin skin. The fruit’s flesh is the color of brown sugar and cocoa and studded with thin flat seeds. Their flavor reflective of their flesh’s color, filled with warm notes of chocolate, sweet baking spices and honey. Less than ripe fruits will pale in color, texture and flavor leaving a lackluster impression with the only memorable hints reminiscent of chalk.

Butternut Squash
Grower: Weiser Family Farms

Description: The classic Butternut squash is one of the most popular varieties. It has a rich, golden-yellow flesh with an excellent texture. Butternut squash has a smooth, long-necked, bell-shape with an orange-yellowish hard rind. Having a relatively small seed cavity in its bulbous end, its tender flesh offers a superb creamy flavor. It yields more meat than most other squash varieties.

Warren Pears
Grower: Frog Hollow Orchards

Description: The Warren pear is the perfectly crafted composition of its parentage. Its appearance, though less than perfect (its skin slightly scarred by nature) is quintessential: bulbous, yet bell-shaped, sun-kissed with tones of earth, sun and clay and dotted with bronze freckles hinting at the fruit’s ripeness. Each visual element is simply a precursor to the fruit’s finest qualities. When ripe, the fruit is semi-firm to the touch and the flesh of the fruit is soft, but not too tender, succulent and juicy, aromatic and candy-sweet but not cloying with complex undertones of vanilla, honey and spice.

Keitt Mango
Grower: Wong Farms

Description: Keitt mangoes are oblong in shape with a pale to dark green skin, though they occasionally have a yellow blush. The color can be misleading, and the only real way to determine whether these large mangoes are ripe is by touch. The skin should give slightly to the touch, and even then the mangoes could rest for a few more days. Keitt mangoes are fiber-free unlike most mangoes, and with a thin seed it allows for a greater amount of its orange-yellow flesh. Keitt mangoes have a tangy sweet flavor with a hint of honey.

Sunflowers
Grower: McGrath Family Farms

Description: The Sunflower is given the botanical name Helianthus annuus, from the Greek word, “helios” (sun) and “anthos” (flower). Easily recognized for its large flower head, the Sunflower has numerous yellow petals surrounding the dark brown center. The center of the Sunflower is composed of tiny florets, which later become edible seeds. The entire Sunflower is edible including the leaves, stems, seeds and petals. The petals of the Sunflower offer a mild floral taste with bitter notes, while the seeds offer a toasted nutty savor. The Sunflower heart has a very tender texture, that presents an artichoke-like flavor that is also mildly sweet as well as astringent.

Peacotums
Grower: Fitzgerald Farms

Description: The small, plum-sized Peacotums have a peachy orange skin covered with dark reddish blush. The skin of a Peacotum has the fuzzy texture like its peach and apricot parents, with a hint of coloring from a plum. Its flesh is the color of a yellow peach with the consistency of its plum parentage. Peacotums have a unique flavor, with the taste of a plum and strong hints of apricot. Within the fruit lies the ‘stone’ seed which should be discarded.
