For summer gifts, here's an excellent tree. Heavy bearing Panamint is a medium size fruit with bright red skin and yellow flesh, so sweet and juicy! It’s the nectarine of choice for coastal gardeners and a long-time favorite of San Diego’s own great garden writer, Pat Welsh. No higher praise than that! Harvest in early-to-mid July.
It's a fabulous combo and the only "two fer" available - the sweet and luscious Royal Lee and Minnie Royal cherries. Plant in a sunny spot for clouds of white/pink blossoms (think springtime in Washington DC!) and incomparably sweet and rich deep red fruit that ripens in May. The Pair of Cherries is an unforgettable gift for the birth of twins, an anniversary or for anyone who waits all years for the cherries from the northwest to come into season. The flavor will knock their socks off! [...
Nothing short of spectacular, this peach offers a blaze of gorgeous double, deep rose colored blossoms. That’s followed by fine-flavored yellow freestone fruit that ripens over a four week period in July and early August. That’s four weeks of amazing fresh backyard peaches. Year after year!
Katy offers attractive heart-shaped leaves and spreading growth habit. The fruit features beautiful golden skin with the palest pink blush and a sweet flavor and aroma. These large and flavorful treats ripen early - ready to pick by mid-June in most areas.
This patented taste test winner was the very first offering from The Wishing Tree Company and rightly so! It’s a freestone yellow peach with outstanding rich flavor and excellent production in warm-winter climates. Nothing says “Summer’s here” like peaches in early June and Eva’s Pride will deliver. The perfect choice for Fathers Day, graduation gifts and June brides.
Its bright red skin and amber flesh make this a favorite early variety. And don’t miss the exquisite fragrance of these delicate white flowers – absolutely plummy! Good and sweet, ready late May to early June and one of the most productive varieties at the coast.
With its gorgeous yellow skin that blushes orange/red, ‘Dorsett Golden’ is a long-time favorite for warm climates. The flesh is firm and crisp with a sweet-tart flavor. Early harvest comes mid-June, just in time to celebrate Fathers Day, graduation and June weddings.
‘Anna’ is a beauty with light green skin and a slight red blush. Sweet, crisp and just a hint of tartness, the fruit ripens early, usually by mid-June in Southern California. Anna is the perfect choice for the June bride and groom. This apple is excellent for eating fresh as well as for baking or applesauce.
