Many Yellow & White Peaches Ripe

   Peach harvest is still going strong.  We're currently finishing harvest of 'Contender' yellow peaches, and still have some 'Intrepid and 'Challenger' yellow peaches and 'Nectar' white peaches for sale.  We're harvesting many 'Glowingstar' yellow peaches now, and have just started harvesting 'Carolina Gold' peaches.  I give taste samples of all peach varieties currently for sale.

We still have 'Nectar' white peaches (left box) for sale, and we're harvesting many 'Glowingstar' yellow peaches (right box) now.
   Small amounts of peaches cost $1.20 per pound + tax.  We pick directly into 20-lb. boxes, which I then weigh to 20.0 lbs., so you save $1.00 if you buy a 20-lb. box of peaches for $23.15 + tax.  We also usually have some 2nds peaches, mostly with small bird pecks or rain cracks or other surface damage, which sell for $0.69 per pound + tax.
We've just started harvesting 'Carolina Gold' peaches, and will keep picking them until about Aug. 17.
   Thornless blackberry season is just about over now.  There are still some sandhill plums to pick for the next few days. 
   Small amounts of everbearing red raspberries and yellow raspberries are ripening now until early Oct.  If you want to pick raspberries, phone 620-597-2450 a day or two ahead, and let me know when you're coming and I'll save them for you.  Otherwise I pick the raspberries for my own use and for Bill to make jam for sale, as raspberries need to be picked every day.

   We're still open our summer hours until Aug. 31: Mon. to Sat. 7:30 a.m. to 12 noon & 7 to 9 p.m., & Sundays 7 to 9 p.m. only.  We're closed Sunday mornings for church (as we are year-round), and from June 1 to Aug. 31 we're closed from 12 noon to 7 p.m. due to high heat.
