Fuyu Persimmons, Black Radishes, and Scott Farm Apples

Market Report:

Just starting up: first of the season quince, pomegranates, and cranberries.  Bear in mind that first of the season is not peak season, so if you can wait, you’re better off flavor-wise.  New this weekend: fuyu persimmons, forelle and comice pears, and native black radishes.

Ending or gapping: figs are very hard to come by.  We have been able to get a few green zebra figs here and there, but black mission have been sparse and poor quality.  Rosa Bianca eggplant is almost over, as well as heirloom tomatoes.  The short french butter pear season is almost done, but we have lots of other great pears, like warren, comice, forelle and seckel.
