Tuesday Fruit!

This week we have new grape varieties and nectarines!

Order your:

  • Grapes:
    • Sovereign Coronation - A virtually seedless blue table grape. It is juicy, very sweet, blue grape. Excellent for fresh eating, preserving or juice. We have both IPM and Transitional Organic available!
    • Fredonia -  Very large deep purple grape with a thick skin, has seeds.
    • Vineland White - A small berry that is sweet without lots of flavour, has seeds.
  • Nectarines: Fantasia - vivid orange-red fruits with juicy yellow flesh that tastes rich and sweet and a 'free' stone 
    • Peaches:Please note that these late season peaches are great for canning and stay firm, even when ripe!
      • Glowingstar - This peach is from the Stellar line of peaches. It is non-browning and has a deep red skin over a bright yellow melting flesh. The flesh has a lovely red colour around the pit. It has sweet flavour and is completely freestone.
      • Cresthaven - A sweet, juicy, medium to large freestone peach that is almost fuzzless. Its bright red skin touched with gold is striking. A non-browning, late-season variety, it is favoured for canning and freezing.
      • Babygold - These clingstone peaches are sweet and juicy with solid flesh (peel with a knife) that are perfect for canning.
    • Pears
      • Bartlett -  Light-green to completely yellow in colour. These are the juiciest pears for fresh eating. You can cook them to make pear sauce or pear butter.  
    • Plums
      • Victory (Blue) -  A slightly tart plum that sweetens as it ripens. It is less firm than the Violet plum, a large round blue plum, almost freestone, purplish in colour.
      • Violet (Blue) -   A slightly tart plum that sweetens as it ripens. They are firmer, dark blue like Stanley plums, large almost freestone with a greenish flesh.
      • Italian (Prune) - Super tasty and great for drying, canning, baking and eating
      • N.Y. 9 (Prune) - 
        Green flesh and purple skin (covered with waxy bloom). It has a mild taste and is rather sweet. Great for processing. When the flesh starts changing from green to amber, it is good to eat also.
      • Vanier (Red) - Red Freestone Plum; Stays firmer longer  

    A note about our fruit from Niagara

    All our Niagara fruit is Tree Run, which means that the fruit is not sent to the grading station. The fruit is picked riper (and tastier) and avoids fungicidal baths and defuzzing in the case of peaches. You will find smaller and larger fruit together in your box. Enjoy the ripest fruit first!
    Enjoy the ripest fruit first and for the rest, spread your peaches out at room temperature on newspaper on their side or bottom (not stem down) and not touching each other and they'll ripen over the next few days.
    Keep peaches and apricots out of the fridge until they are ripe as they can get a mealy texture when chilled.
