What's in Season
Welcome Summer Fruit Season!
After a unpredictable and often times unseasonable Winter/Spring, we are now into our stone fruit harvest, also known as our official start to Summer. A dry, warm January and early February had the trees bursting with beautiful bloom, our over 100 varieties of peaches, plums, nectarines, apricots, pluots and prunes were emerging from their dormant season earlier than normal. Early variety bloom quickly turned to fruit set, we were looking at a great fruit selection for Spring. Unfortunately, late February temperatures drastically changed, we went into three days of severe cold and even snow! This weather pattern was worse case scenario for the bloom and fruit set. Baby fruit was damaged and lost, bloom was burnt, unable to set to fruit. This resulted in a near 75% loss of early May fruit crops. Trees that had still yet to bloom and trees located in warmer spots managed to escape the damage. Another cold snap in April again impacted crops with Fall varieties in bloom. Rain in late April/early May had us grateful for much needed water but nervous on how it would effect just ripening peaches. Needless to say, it was a wild, stressful ride!
This finds us having a much lighter Summer harvest than normal. We still plan on having plenty of delicious fruit, just less of it. Early peaches have already shown to have excellent flavor. Juicy, floral, sweet and tangy, all the things we love about stone fruit. Varieties change quickly, freestone peaches expected for mid June, try as many as you can to find your favorite.
Find our stone fruit at local farmers markets, select stores and for out restaurant customers through our Sacramento area distributor, Produce Express.
Hand Made Jams
Our hand made jams feature an assortment of all of our seasonal favorites. Made with fruit always as a first ingredient, our jams feature organic sugar or honey and low sugar pectin. Each variety is made in small batches, carefully crafted to highlight the unique characteristics of each ripe fruit.
Certified Organic Fruit
We are excited to announce that as of February of 2021, Twin Peaks Orchards now grows nearly 30 acres of certified organic fruit! What started off as 6 acres in 2011 and orginally offered under the Orchard Delights at Twin Peaks label, we grow varieties of heirloom stone fruit, persimmons including our famed Amagaki variety, grapefruit, pomellos, lemons, mandarins, tangerines, blood oranges and olives.
