What the heck is a “Pluot”, you ask? Well, the Pluot is actually a hybrid of a Plum and an Apricot that tastes more like a plum. Pluot harvest starts in late August. Many people will say, “Those are the best plums I’ve ever eaten”! We’re sure you’ll agree with them.
Colorado Apricots are generally in full swing when we open in early July for the Fruit & Veggie season. If we’re lucky, they will continue until about the end of July. If you’re an Apricot fan, get them early in the season to make sure you get your fill.
Colorado Pear harvest starts around the second week of August and continues through mid September. Pears are generally pressure tested to determine their ripeness before being harvested which is why most pears are picked with a green color. Pears will rot very easily if they are left on the tree to ripen. Ripening in a cool, dry place in addition to very delicate handling, will produce a perfectly ripened, juicy pear.
We only roast the best Green Chile that Colorado has to offer. Most of our Chile is grown in the Brighton / Ft. Lupton and Pueblo areas and is always fresh. CLICK HERE for more information.
COLORADO 'VINE RIPENED' TOMATOES
Tasty vine ripened Tomatoes are hard to find in large supply. Our vine ripened tomatoes are grown in Grand Junction, CO and the supply usually continues through most of September. If you haven’t eaten a true “Vine Ripened” tomato, you really haven’t eaten a real Tomato!
COLORADO SUPER SWEET CORN
Sweet Corn is fresh picked numerous times throughout the week. We carry some of the finest super-sweet corn available. Stop by and try some. You just can’t get enough.
Bing Cherries typically start in Colorado depending on the weather. We then move into Utah Cherries, Flathead Lake (Montana) Cherries and generally finish out the Cherry season with Washington Cherries.
Mid August is generally the starting point for Colorado’s Apple harvest. We carry numerous varieties of apples as they are harvested as they ripen through September.
