|'Jonafree' apples taste great for an early variety, but are smaller this year and suffered more damage from heat.|
A few of the Asian pears have just started ripening, and they'll continue for the next month or so. We grow 'Shinko', which is the Asian pear most resistant to fire blight disease, and has wonderful flavor. Last year these Asian pears were huge, many pears weighing1/2 pound each, but they're smaller this year after the record heat and drought. They still taste great though.
|'Shinko' Asian pears are starting to ripen and will continue till early Oct.|
European pears won't be ripe for another week or so, and we'll have them until Oct. 20 or so. We have several varieties that ripen at different times, all resistant to fire blight disease, and all with wonderful flavor.
|'Luscious' European pears will start ripening next week.|
