Figs - Between VarietiesPicking is Good (am) to Fair (pm).
Brown Turkey are winding up.
Celeste are starting.
Picking will improve again as Celeste ripen.
Best picking will always be in the morning.
Mid to late afternoon is when we send the pickers to clear the trees
and restock our pre-picked inventory.
Check out our fig picking tips.
Seedless Table GrapesPicking is slowing significantly. Now picking Mars, Joy, Saturn and Venus
Saturn are nearing the end.
Saturn is a crunchy grape- most like what you find in the store.
Joy is a small, dark blue, elliptical shaped grape.
Mars is a more medium sized, dark blue grape.
Venus is back! A new wave of grapes has ripened. Get them while they last.
Please do not "tear" grapes from the vines, as that opens wounds and opens them to disease.
Grapes require using snippers.
Please check out our picking tips .
Razzmatazz & Oh MyRazzmatazz is a seedless muscadine, much smaller than the the Bullis (black) and Scuppernong (bronze or golden) muscadines.
Ripe fruit should be dark red. They are both sweet and tart.
Oh My is a new variety of seedless muscadine, yellow or bronze in color.
It is bigger than Razzmatazz but smaller than the Suppernong & Bullis.
Picking is good in the Razzmatazz and just starting in the Oh My.
Like with table grapes, you need snippers and harvest Razzmatazz and Oh My by the bunch.
Scuppernong & Bullis MuscadinesThe Bullis (black) and Scuppernong (bronze or golden) muscadines have started.
Picking is slow but should be Good or better by the end of the week (August 19ish).
These muscadines are big and harvested individually.
It takes scounting and you have to look down, in and under the bushes.
