Too many to mention

Pawpaw

North America's largest native fruit. Tropically-related. Tastes like a cross between a banana and a mango with a custard-like texture. Delicious on its own, in ice cream, or in baked desserts.

We grow only cultivated varieties which tend to be higher yielding and produce delicious fruits with a high pulp to seed ratio.

Kiwi Berries

A grape-sized cousin of the familiar fuzzy kiwi fruit, this hardy relative bears a fuzz-less and much sweeter fruit with the same kiwi flavor. You can eat this fruit skin and all.

Passion Popper

Asian Persimmon
