Forbidden Fruit Orchards products are made using only the freshest, ripest produce hand-picked directly from the farm. We sell our produce at numerous farmer’s markets, some retail grocery chains and on the farm.
Our certified organic southern highbush blueberries produce off-season fruit from September through July. Large, crisp, flavorful berries that are sold throughout California. Our fall and winter production is very weather driven and our volumes vary. We sell to key wholesaler, Earl’s Organics, who distributes our fruit in the San Francisco area and So Cal Farm who distributes in the Los Angeles area. Otherwise, we can be found at numerous farmer’s markets.
We planted 7.5 acres of Pinot Noir and Chardonnay in 2007. Our first vintage of wine was in 2011. We believe our wine is made in our vineyard so our grapes are farmed to obtain the highest quality possible. That means we can do less in the winery.
Currants / Gooseberries
We have planted numerous varieties with our emphasis on red and pink currants. Watch for our red currant jelly.
Fresh Dried Green tea
We have about 300 Camilea sinensus bushes planted. Very slow growing, we are continually propagating new plants. We have picked and processed the tea leaves and are selling a limited number of hand filled tea bags.
We grow about 1/2 acre of the Haas variety and our production is increasing yearly.
We are growing Morus alba ‘Pakistan’ and have planted about 1 acre. Our mulberries are available for retail sale.
We have about 1/2 acre of Gala and Fuji apples. We pick and sell our apples weekly during apple season only. We do not hold them in cold storage for long term sales and pick the sweetest to make our homemade applesauce.
