Fig Season! Sorry no apples,

By Bryan Hutzler - Last updated: Friday, July 28, 2017

figsWe are currently picking Alma figs!  The orchard is open Tuesday through Saturday from 9 to 4 for picking.  Figs ripen daily but get picked daily, so  please call ahead before coming out at 830-589-2588.  We might have a bunch of figs one morning and nothing the next if we have a wave of pickers.

In 2016, we had hail 5 times during fruit set.  This year, we had inadequate chill so the trees did not break dormancy properly.  For the second year in a row we have small crops of other fruits, not enough to open up for picking. 

We do have a few Victoria Red Grapes and some apples already picked.  When they are bought, they are gone.
