Go to an Indian or Mexican store and get some mangoes. They are in season and it’s a good crop this year. I got some ripe Alphonso mangoes at India Sweets and Spices this weekend that tasted like honey.

How much for each? We got a box of 7 Kent mangoes at H-Mart for $4.99 and they were great.

We got our last box of strawberries from Oxnard this weekend. Not as good as the May box but still better than anything we’ve had not named Harry.

The peaches and nectarines at Arnett Farms have been great as usual.

Are you in Fresno? If not, how and where are you getting the fruit from Arnett Farms?

They are at the Saturday Irvine’s Farmers Market at Mariners Church.

Has anyone seen stone fruit from Terranelli Farms, yet…or is it too early?

Did you mean Tenerelli Farms? Or is there a different farm with a similar name?

Tenerelli Orchards returned to Santa Monica FM some weeks ago with just cherries and is now in almost all its normal FMs (Hollywood, Pasadena, BH, Alhambra, etc.) now with apricots with peaches to come soon. I didn’t pick up our order, but we received all Robada Apricots and they are the bomb :bomb:. I don’t even use a knife. I just pull them in half and enjoy.

Lulu, we’ve had much the same experience with cherries except the first week at Ken’s Stone Fruit. I think there was a lot of rain and hail injured and diluted the cherries. They are an extremely and mostly non-insurable crop. I probably missed Ha Orchards sour cherries, but the Washington State cherries may be a better bet.

If you see sour cherries, please post a PSA. I will drive for those.

Ripe and sweet and juicy. It’s a short season, so I recommend you visit your local ethnic stores that may carry this luscious fruit.

My absolute favorite grape just appeared, finally, at Ralphs. The Moon Drops grown by The Grapery. So much better than the Sweet Sapphire.

Snatch them up before they’re gone.
