Burkart Stone Fruit At Peak Flavor

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

Now is the time to take advantage of Burkart stone fruit! Picked at optimum maturity with the highest sugar levels, Burkart stone fruit has outstanding flavor and is a real crowd pleaser! Burkart grows high-quality organic stone fruit on 65 acres near Dinuba along the northern border of Tulare County about four hours south of San Francisco. One of the advantages of working with small growers like Burkart, is that they spend extra time focusing on the quality of the stone fruit, going through their orchard and doing several picks of each variety. Many larger growers will go through the orchard two times and do a strip pick to get all the fruit as opposed to selecting fruit that is at optimum maturity for peak flavor.

Inspect the stem end of a Burkart yellow peach and you will often see more color than fruit from other orchards. The full color is an indication of maturity that translates into superior flavor. Richard Burkart is now picking Summer Lady yellow peaches and Summer Sweet white peaches. Now is the time to enjoy luscious juice dripping stone fruit, as sweet as the perfect summer afternoon.

All varieties are free stone except for the white nectarine pearl varieties. Free stone fruit falls away easily from the pit versus cling stone varieties where the fruit clings to the pit.
