California Cherimoyas are in this week. The fruit is fleshy and soft, sweet, white in color, with a sherbet-like texture. In many opinions it has a flavor similar to a blend of banana, pineapple, and strawberry. Mark Twain called the cherimoya "the most delicious fruit known to men."

Rainier Cherries are also in. These are the pinnacle of cherry varieties. They are cultivated from a cross of Bing and Van varieties. Rainier cherries are known for their sweet creamy-yellow flesh.

Cactus Pears are one of the most unique fruits we carry. Thankfully their prickly bits have been removed and are ready to be eaten. A special fact about these fruits is that they contain a melody of medically relevant compounds that have been known for their health benefits.

Last but not least are the California Peaches. Although not exotic, they're a sweet staple of any summer fruit salad.
