~SEASONAL UPDATE ~  

Saturday, August 8th we will be at the Dane County Farmers Market on the square with a limited supply of Sea Berry, Blackberries, and Pears and a good supply of Plums for fresh eating, and a Cherry-Plum hybrid for processing.

The Cherry-Plum (Sapalta) that can be used like a tart Cherry. The fruit has a dark purple flesh indicating a high anthocyanin content (a powerful anti-oxidant) and is excellent for processing.

 

Underwood is a dessert quality plum with a golden yellow flesh that is juicy, tender, and sweet while the skin is moderately tart offering a very enjoyable, and complex, eating experience.
