Best Armenia and Persian Makets,

I mainly like to try new and different produce.

I really am looking for greens, meleons, different tomatoes, and maybe grains.

I'm so tired of the usual junk at the supermarket and I'm not happy at whole foods. I don't know of any great farmers markets in the SFV either.

Thank you for the help

Places to eat Persian Mulberries

Thank you for the help.

I was hopeing to find a place where I could eat them at a sit down place but I guess I'll have to stick to the farmers market.

Is there any farmers market in the S.F. valley that sells them in season?

I hate to drive down to the S.M. market all the time.

Thanks a ton,

Places to eat Persian Mulberries

I know it not the time of year to eat them....

But I would like to know places where to eat them when they are in season. I had them for the
first this year and enjoyed them very much.

I would like to try them in desserts or what ever. I hear that chefs make great things with them.

I live by the foothills Pasadena, but will drive any where with my family.

Thank you very much.

Thanks to all,

I make a lot of cherry cobbler and will make pies. 20 lbs is really not that much after you pit them.

Das,

I will go to some of the farmers market you talked about. How much do they run a pound?

Thanks a ton,

Cherry Picking and other you pick Fruit..

Hey JimmyBe,

Here's the thing that I like about the place the best.

It's a farm. You get to talk to the people that GROW the food. You get to walk around and try the fruit. You get to ask them what they like. You get to smell the lavender and buy it. You get to taste really honey. This is all before the cherries.

Now the black tartarians are a trip. I would never buy them if I hadn't tried them. Their a little smaller then a grape and very black. OMG they are packed with FLAVOR. The owner will walk you around and show you cherries and maybe just maybe if he likes you he will show you the giants. But see you have to talk to them. Not just rush in and pick.

Now he has an HEIRLOOM orchard and he gets pick out every year so you have to get on the e mail list not phone in. Yes there are other orchards up there but this places has old old trees and of course use none of that junky chemical stuff. I think it says that on the web site, but all you have to do is ask them.

Ok Jimmy is that enough info???

Hey Das Uber,

How were the cherries in Irvine???

I use to live in Orange. So it would be neat to know how they are.

See ya all,

Cherry Picking and other you pick Fruit..

Wow,

Thanks a lot for all the great post.

I have never been to Oak Glen. It's very far from me. I will look to see if I can bring some friends.

Hey Jimmy Be,

So I found another Big John's follower. Have you tried there famous Big John's Giants? It is one of the greatest cherries I have every tasted. Let me know if you have. I usually buy some of their black tartarians, white rainers and of course some bings. He has like 12-14 different type of cherries. It is a very special place for me and our family. I usually get a couple of bunches of lavender for the wife too. If I buy a lot of cherries he'll give me some dried lavender satchels too. You can tell I'm hooked on the place.

Once again thanks for all the posts,

D

Cherry Picking and other you pick Fruit..

Howdy to all,

I really, really enjoy one farm I go to up by Palmdale. They sell sweet and I think sour cherries plus lavender and OUTSTANDING cherry honey.I have gone to this one place the past 8 years. They use no pesticides, herbicides, while most orchards do up there of course that is why I go to this farm.

Anyways here's a link, they send out e mails when the fruit and flowers are ripe.
www.gatherafruitfulharvest.com

Now I have shared one of my secert places. I say this because last year the farms got all froze out and I was one of the lucky few to get cherries at the farm.

But what I really would like to know is if anyone knows of any other great place to pick fruit. I would rather go to a farm and not a farmers market that way I know they have no pesticides etc.

Thanks a ton,

I really enjoy fresh fruit. I have read about but never had fresh in seasons persian mulberries.

My main questions are where do you buy them and for how much a pound.

Also are there any you pick places in Southern California?

Leona Valley/U Pick Cherries

Oh I so can't wait for cherry picking season. I really enjoy going to Leona Valley, up by Palmdale.

I have gone to one place the past 8 years. They use no pesticides, herbicides, which most orchards do up there.

Anyways here's a link, they send out e mails when the fruit and flowers are ripe. Yep they have lavender too.
