We have fruit available from June to January. Our goal is to have our local fruit or fruit products available to Minnesota coops year round. We start harvesting strawberries in late May or early June. Before the strawberries finish up, we start on red raspberries and then blueberries. The black, purple, and yellow raspberries come after the early reds. Cherry plums overlap the berries and then the American hybrid plums start and continue to ripen into early September overlapping the summer apples. The high quality fall apples begin in mid September and then the winter apples are harvested in October. Winter apples are kept cool and crisp in our refrigerated storage and are sold into January.
