Fruits - Exotic Sweet and Sour Varieties for Many ApplicationsEarthy Delights
There are a multitude of exotic and interesting fruits. My favorite is the Finger Lime that has its own product page. Fruits certainly can be enjoyed by themselves, but the juice, rind slices and whole inclusion in other preparations adds incredible flavors.
Greengage Plums. Arguably the best flavored of any plum variety with a distinctive sweet-honey flavor. Ideal for eating raw. Not Currently Available
Fresh Green Almonds. "Green Almonds" are the young, developing fruit (nuts) of the almond tree that are eaten whole when the shell has not yet hardened and is still fuzzy, green and fleshy. This tart fruit is available only from mid April to mid June. A popular snack in many parts of the world, they are often eaten dipped in salt as an appetizer or snack. Early in the season, the center of the nut is nearly clear and gelatinous. Later, as the nut slowly matures, the kernel is white and tender. Near the end of the season, the shell begins to harden, and the still immature nuts are sliced open and the tender, sweet kernel is eaten.Either way, green almonds are an unusual and delicious treat!

Blood Orange. Also known as the Moro orange. This citrus can arrive with a full, deep maroon colored flesh, or simply with light red to pink veins running through the flesh. In either case, it is beautiful. Deeply colored fruit has berry-like flavor subtleties that make it a most refreshing fruit.
Buddha's Hand. The Buddha's Hand (a.k.a. - Finger Citron) is a large, hand shaped citrus fruit with long skinny "fingers." It is mostly comprised of thick yellow rind - which may be candied or zested. Buddha's Hand zest has a lovely citrus flavor that can be used in baked goods, icings, syrups, cocktails, marinades and salad dressings. Not Currently Available
Calamondin. With sour flesh and sweet skin these little gems are much like kumquats but more juicy. Calamondin or Calamanzi, are popular in Filipino cuisine, used in seafood, pork and poultry dishes. But don't limit yourself, incorporate into desserts, dressings and cocktails. Not Currently Available
Dekopon (Sumo) Citrus. A Japanese hybrid of a mandarin and an orange, these delicous gems are easy to peel and easier to eat. Super sweet and seedless to boot they are excellent for eating out of hand and make great additions to amenity baskets. Not Currently Available
Kumquat. Kumquats are little orange citrus fruits. They should be enjoyed intact, and not peeled. The skin is sweet and the meat is tart, so peeling it takes away from the fruits sweet-tart appeal. Perhaps one of the most versatile and delicious citrus fruits, they are wonderful, candied, kabobed, frozen and used as a garnish in tropical cocktails, makes an outstanding kumquat bread (contact us for the recipe), makes great marmalade, and is terrific when sliced and served with fresh berries or other sliced fruits.

Meyer Lemon. This lemon is about the same size as a conventional lemon, but is more round and has a thinner, smoother skin, which also translates to its flavor that is sweeter, far less acidic and tart, and much “smoother” than any other lemon. It can be eaten out-of-hand, which speaks to its wide array of culinary applications and its popularity is growing annually. How about a Meyer Lemon cheesecake?! Not Currently Available
Page Mandarin. The Page mandarin definitely packs a punch. Petite but oh so sweet they have a thin easy to peel skin. Fantastic for eating out of hand they are also great in pretty much any application from saucing to juicing to using in sorbets and marinades. Not Currently Available
Variegated Pink Lemon. Green and yellow variegation on the exterior leads to vibrant pink flesh on the inside! These wonderful lemons have great lemon flavor and can be used in a myriad of ways, as regular lemons. Be sure to make use of their gorgeous peel if possible. Slice into rounds for topping pastries, garnishing drinks etc. Not Currently Available
