These tender, small stone fruits are the perfect melding of a plum and a peach. Bake into fruit dumplings; make delicious Italian-style marmalade; slice and bake with pork chops; eat out of hand.
Frog Hollow Farm supports the health of life forms both big and small, from their trees and the crew that cares for them down to the billions of microorganisms that reside in their soil. As organic and regenerative farmers, they go above and beyond organic requirements to ensure that the health and productivity of their land is not only maintained but improved upon and continually revitalized. You’ll taste the care they put into our land when you bite into their exceptionally delicious fruit.
Their 280-acre certified organic farm is home to thousands of trees that produce peaches, nectarines, cherries, apricots, apriums, plums, pluots, mulberries pears, olives, persimmons, quince, apples, meyer lemons, blood oranges and more. Their highly skilled team picks the fruit tree-ripe, allowing for maximum flavor and nutrients to develop. Because their harvest and fruit-packing crews are so skilled in handling especially ripe, delicate fruit, the “brix” level (a measurement of sugar and nutrient development) of their fruit is off the charts! When soil and crops are healthy, so are people. Fruit-lovers in turn enjoy tastier, more nutrient-dense food whose production has not harmed land or humans.
Ripen apricots on the counter for 2-3 days (place in a paper bag to speed this process). Store ripe apricots in a container in the fridge for up to a week.
