Mango Supply is Excellent

We've picked all of our Carrie Mangos.  The ripe mangos sold today, but we do have some green Carries that will be available for sale on Monday.  I'm not sure if any will be available after Monday.

Almost all of our Haden mangos have been picked, but some will still be available Monday.  We've just picked the last of Ryan.
Valencia Pride and Zill mango season is just beginning, and they look great. 
This morning I have been able to find some Lemon Meringue (PPK) and Duncan mangos, as well as Bailey's Marvel, Cogshall, Graham, Jakarta, Florigon, Van Dyke, Fairchild, Irwin, Glenn, Gary.
A few Sugar Apples have started to mature.

...I'll add more details later

Midweek Mangos

The remaining Carrie Mangos are ripening quickly.  We've picked more than 90% of the crop.  Once again ripe Carrie Mangos will be the star of what we have to sell today. 
It's very likely that this will be the last week we will have Carries this year.

Valencia Pride mangos will soon move into the top position.  Every day I'm finding more beautiful Valencia Prides.

Haden mangos are almost finished for the summer, but we will have a very good supply this week.

Also available are Dot, Fairchild, Glenn, Cogshall, Jakarta, Palmer, Irwin, Mallika, etc.

Open today, Wednesday, 4-6 pm
Open tomorrow, Thursday, 2-4 pm

Sunday, July 21, 2013

Mangos on Monday

We have lots of ripe Carrie mangos still!
Over 75% of the second crop has been picked, and they're ripening quickly.
I'm picking the fruit twice a day, and I've gotten quite a few since Saturday.

Other Mangos continue to get more plentiful.  This morning I picked some nice Valencia Pride, Dot, Jakarta, Mallika, Zill, Van Dyke and Palmer. 

Also we have two jak fruits available, and carambola.

Open Monday 12-2.

This Week, etc.

We are in peak season for Carrie mangos.  Some of our trees will finish producing for the year within the next ten days.  Supply is good, and many of the mangos are ripe or close to ripe.

Perhaps by Saturday the second crop of Bailey's Marvel will start to ripen.  Valencia Pride's peak season will probably be in about 2 weeks.  Most of the second crop of Jakarta, Zill Indochinese and Beverly hasn't been picked yet.  We still have some Lemon Meringue (PPK), Florigon, Duncan, Fairchild, Glenn, and Cogshall.  We are still waiting for Zill, Van Dyke, Kent, Keitt, Best, Cushman, Bombay and Pickering.

Other Fruit...
Carambola are looking and tasting great.  We grow Bell and Fwang Tung.
Sugar Apple are at least a couple weeks away from the beginning of their season.
Sapodilla are still available.
Black Sapote are few
Jak Fruit will be available for the next month, but we can't accurately predict when they will be ripe.

Another Fruit-Picking Tour!

Finally we have enough mangos to host another fruit-picking tour...

July 21
...please arrive a few minutes early as we will close the gate at 4pm
 $2 per person plus the cost of whatever fruit you purchase

Friday, July 5, 2013

Saturday Fruit

When I last checked the jak fruit, none was ready to pick.  We should have some carambola, sapodilla and black sapote.


The amount of Valencia Pride for sale will only be modest.  Next week should be better.

We will have at least two boxes of Carrie.

Also we will have some Haden, Tommy Atkins, Duncan, Glenn, Cogshall and a few other varieties.

~Our mango supply is improving, but we seem to be a couple weeks away from the peak of our late season~
