Fruit of the Week:
Sweet Ann Strawberries
JW Farms, Watsonville, CA
The Sweet Anne is a fairly new variety, created in 2005 to grow in the coastal climates like Santa Cruz County. Sweet Anns are usually big, conically-shaped berries with excellent sweet old fashioned stawberry flavor and a semi firm flesh.
Cuyama, New Cuyama, CA
Fujis are a cross between Red Delicious and Ralls Janet, an heirloom apple dating back to Thomas Jefferson. They are one of the sweetest variety apples around making them a household favorite.
Bravacado, San Diego, CA
Creamy in texture, nutty in flavor, with a small to medium seed. The Hass skin is easy to peel and darkens from green to purplish-black as it ripens.
Abounding Harvest Mountain Farm, Los Gatos, CA
The Tango is a newer variety tangerine created from budwood of Murcott mandarins which are prized for sweet and tangy flavor, deep orange color and easy to peel rind. The Tango holds all of the delightful characteristics of the Murcott but is virtually seedless.
Churchill Orchards, Ojai, CA
The tough skin of this late season tangerine gives way to a delightfully robust flavor.
