Sunriver is a full service stop for specialty Fall items. Beginning in August through the first
of the year, think Sunriver when stocking your full service Fall line-up.
ASIAN PEARS . . . Beginning in August with Hosui (brown) and Shinseiki
(yellow) Asian pears, we pack in single layer and two layer tissue wrapped cartons. These "applepears" are
so sweet they might be cause for an extra trip to the dentist. The Asian pears are hand packed and PLU stickered
to ensure consistent quality.|
PEARS . . . The beginning of Fall is marked by the Bartlett pear starting at the end
of August. This old standard cannot be beat and starts in the river bottom of Stockton and progresses to the Northern
California mountains for seamless harvest and availability. Our pear availability also includes Starkrimson (reds), Golden
Bosc and European Bosc pears. Our pears are all consolidated in Exeter to ship with your tree fruit needs.
POMEGRANATES . . . The "grenada" is the start of the pomegranate season at the beginning of
September. The Foothill variety begins in mid September into October and is capped off with the Wonderful variety from
October until after Thanksgiving. We do not harvest our pomegranates until they have full red exterior color and cut
"blood red" in color. We hand pack and PLU sticker our pomegranates in a nostalgic TKV lug that makes a perfect
centerpiece for the Fall palette.|
PERSIMMONS . . . The perfect complement to our other fall specialty items, persimmons begin on October 1st.
The Fuyu (flat and pumpkin-like) is the Asian persimmon for eating. This is packed in single layer or volume-filled cartons. The Hachiya
is the traditional cooking persimmon that is harvested from October until the end of December. Either variety tops off the perfect
centerpiece or makes cookies that are sure to remind you of grandma during the holidays.|
