I've now started harvesting a few 'Harrowsweet' European pears. More of these will keep ripening until late Sept. I'm also still harvesting some 'Shinko' Aisan pears.

I've started harvesting a few 'Sundance' apples, a big yellow apple with a sprightly sweet-tart flavor with a hint of pineapple. More 'Sundance' apples are available for pick-your-own sales, but these are limited as we only have two bearing trees. (We've grafted more, but they aren't bearing yet.) We also have one bearing tree of Coop 27, another selection from the same breeding program for scab-immune apples as 'Sundance' (formerly Coop 29), 'Enterprise' (formerly Coop 30), and 'GoldRush' (formerly Coop 28). Coop 27 has a taste very similar to 'Jonathan', and one of our customers called it "the perfect apple". 'Enterprise' should start about Sept. 15.
