Cherry U-Pick Season Has Arrived in Brentwood

Harvest Time in brentwood

by CC News

The folks at Harvest Time in Brentwood have announced that this weekend will be OPENING WEEKEND for many of its Cherry Orchards.

From now until early June, cherry  season is in full swing with farms opening new lots every week as new cherry varieties become available. This week, they are introducing three cherry varieties:

  • Tioga Cherry: This variety offers a sweet crunch, dark flesh and a tangy finish. It’s moderate to large size makes it great for snacking.
  • Coral Cherry: Loved by many, the coral variety is sweet and juicy with “pop” at the first bite. Corals are generously large making every bite satisfying.
  • Black Pearl Cherry: This variety is a deep burgundy in color. With their sweet flavor and moderate firmness, this variety is perfect for snacking or baking.

Here is a list of OPEN Cherry Farms this week:

But don’t stop at cherries! Visit the largest u-pick mulberry  farm on the West Coast at Very Mulberry farm. Unlike other berries, mulberries are pure sweetness with a rich jammy flavor with no tartness.

And for those who prefer strawberries, pluck them right from the patch-perfect for little ones with their low-to-the-ground rows.

There’s more! Early varieties of peaches and blackberries are also available for picking at select farms.

Celebrate Moms this weekend  and give Mom the gift of sweet and fresh fruit straight from our farms
