twin peaks orchard persimmons
We are pleased to offer two varieties of delicious persimmons– Fuyu and Amagaki- from Twin Peaks Orchard (Newcastle, CA). Founded in 1912, Twin Peaks Orchard is a 5th generation family farm specializing in a variety of stone fruit, citrus, and persimmons. Twin Peaks also has a small organic section called Orchard Delights that is personally operated by our very own Camelia Enriquez Miller.
- Fuyu (organic)- sweet with a noticeable maple flavor and cinnamon-sugar flecks; smaller in size than commercial varieties. The Fuyu persimmon is not astringent and can be eaten as soon as they are picked. The flesh is crisp like an apple and are excellent in salads, on a cheese board, baked, or enjoyed out of hand. Grown on the Orchard Delights section, these Fuyu trees are some of the oldest on the 106 year old property at Twin Peaks. Available by the 10# case only.
- Amagaki– also known as cinnamon persimmons, these sweet beauties are golden fleshed with brown flecks. Amagaki persimmons have a buttery texture and a cinnamon sweetness. Amagakis are more astringent than Fuyus but Twin Peaks has perfected a curing process that removes the astringency and leaves the Amagaki crisp, sweet, and unmatched in flavor. Amagakis are larger than Fuyus, and have a great shelf life and are delicious enjoyed out of hand, in salads, and it can be lightly cooked but best not baked. Available in a 10# case only.
twin peaks orchard pomegranates
In addition to persimmons, we are also offering delectable and vibrant pomegranates from Twin Peaks Orchard! Pomegranate seeds are botanically called Ariels. They are tender and crisp with a burst of sweet/tart juice. Some seeds will be mildly acidic while others have sweet, citrus overtones. Pomegranate seeds can be used for a variety of applications- add a sweet crunch to salads, wonderful flavoring desserts, and a nice balance to savory dishes. Available in an 10# case or per piece.
