Texas Sugar Figs–U-Pick begins Tuesday, June 26, 2018.
Blackberries picked 6-23-18. Not as large or as plentiful as they were earlier in the season, but the diehards cans till find some nice ones.
La Feliciana Peaches, season ending probably later this week. U-Pick peaches, but we have some prepicked in the market. Beautiful red color on skin is also on flesh of peeled peach, so this variety makes beautiful two-tone jams or preserves.
Cushaw makes a wonderful pie or side dish.
Cream peas are available for U-Pick, probably for another week or two.
