Peach, tomato, corn, blueberry and apple update–August 20th

Just a quick note about a few things going on this week:

Peaches:  This week we will pick most of our peaches in our new orchard and they are beautiful.    The varieties are Flamin’ Fury and Coral Star.  This may be the only week we can offer larger quantities of pecks–which is a 1/4 bushel. ($10/peck.)   So for those of you who have been trying to get peaches–don’t delay.

Tomatoes:  Just to prove that we really are waiting for the tomatoes to ripen I took this picture this morning….when and if they finally turn red, we will have lots of tomatoes for you to pick or buy in bushel quantity.   This year we have staked them all so picking will be easier than ever.  We are hoping this week’s hot weather will help.

This year’s u-Pick field–still waiting for tomatoes to turn red

Earliblaze apple special:  We have picked our Earliblaze apples for the year and are offering them at a special price due to not having enough cold storage space to keep them.  These are one of the best summer apples for eating, cooking (pies or sauce.)  They will be $16 a bushel, tree run, until we sell out.  Call us if you would like to reserve some. 269-244-5690.

Blueberries:  This is the last week we will have blueberries.

Sweet Corn:  This morning we picked the last sweet corn for the year.  Thanks to all of our customers who enjoyed it.  If you are still needing corn, we would recommend Stears Corn, located in Constantine, call 435-8232.

All for now….hope to see you soon,  Beth and everyone at Corey Lake Orchards
