We specialize in berries! The dates for a typical season are given here; please visit our homepage or call for current information.
Raspberries ~ Mid-June through September. Several varieties, including sweet red raspberries, a wonderful golden raspberry, and late varieties that ripen well past summer.
Tayberries ~ Late June to mid-July. A raspberry/blackberry cross from Scotland, with a mellow flavor that is wonderful for jam.
Loganberries ~ Late June to mid-July. Another raspberry/blackberry cross, but with a tarter flavor. Great for jam or pies.
Silvan Blackberries ~ Late June to mid-July. Big, juicy, rich flavor, very similar to marionberries.
Gooseberries ~ July. Tart, green or pink berries used for jam or pies.
Currants ~ July. Red, black, white varieties. Tart little berries, often juiced for jellies.
Marionberries ~ Mid-July. A favorite blackberry variety, with intense floral aroma when picked perfectly ripe. Short season! Unfortunately, the winter of 2016-17 was too cold for sensitive marionberries; this year’s fruiting canes died back, but canes for next year’s crop are growing.
Boysenberries ~ Mid-July. A big, tasty blackberry cousin.
Waldo Blackberries ~ Mid-July. A thornless variety with a deep, rich flavor. Very small seeds for a blackberry. Great for jam or cobbler. Same fate as marionberries – none this year, but fruiting canes for next year’s crop are growing.
Triple Crown Blackberries ~ Late July through August. Thornless canes with large, firm, sweet berries.
Chester Blackberries ~ August & September. Another thornless variety, producing abundantly over a long season. Flavor is similar to wild blackberries.
