Heralding in the Stone Fruit Season
Every year we wait with bated breath until the stone fruit season begins. This year even though we have already seen a smattering of stone fruit on the market, next week really heralds the arrival of the stone fruit season as we receive our first shipment of Burkart Peaches along with other local growers. If you ever have tasted a Burkart Peach you know how flavorful they are. Richard Burkart grows high-quality organic stone fruit on 65 acres near Dinuba along the northern border of Tulare County about 4 hours south of San Francisco.
What is the difference between a cling stone and free stone peach, between a peach and a nectarine and how do you eat an early season versus late season piece of fruit? Look for the answers and more in upcoming blogs as we explore the many varieties arriving each week at Earls.
