We bought a flat of your peaches & nectarines and they were very good - bought them a bit firm - bought them home & left them out covered with a towel and ripened very nicely, now they are ripe, sweet and juicy. They were all perfect - not one was damaged. We do go to the Okanagan once in a while and my sister lives in Greenwood - I would like to know if you have a fruit stand in Osoyoos or in that area where you sell to the public.? thank you.

Hi Mrs. Wong, We're thrilled that you're happy with our nectarines and took the time to post about them. Our fruit stand in Osoyoos is open for a little while yet but the nectarines are close to the end of their season. Summer Breeze apples are starting to come in now though, if we can tempt you with those at the fruit stand...
