What’s Ripe When

Here’s our best guess (as of early June) for when we expect our harvest in Oceana County to start:

MayAsparagus (harvest should continue through mid-June).

Mid June:  Local Strawberries 

Mid June:  Our Honeyberries

Mid July:   Our Sweet Cherries, Apricots, & Zucchini 

Mid to Late July:  Our Tart Cherries & Local Blueberries, Our Peaches &  Summer Plums, Our Famous Sweet Corn, Our Tomatoes & Peppers, Local Green Beans

Early to Mid August:  Our Nectarines, Apples & Melons

Early to Mid September:  Our SweeTango(R) & Honeycrisp Apples, Our Fall Plums, Local Pears, Our Winter Squash

Mid September:  Our Pumpkins & Decorative Gourds, Our Apples (many varieties) through fall as they ripen.
