Our first variety of cherries is Sunburst.  Picking commences around the start of December.  Sunburst is a large red cherry with excellent flavour.  

Our second variety is the Lapins, a dark red/mahogany firm cherry of good size and flavour.  The Lapins cherries are usually available until Christmas.

Our range of 23 varieties of peaches is led by Elegant Lady, a traditional yellow peach with the acid/sugar flavour.  Two of the sub-acid varieties worthy of note are Diamond Candy, an ultra-sweet  yellow, and Ice Princess, perhaps our most outstanding white peach.  Both these mature in January.
