Update August 10, 2016, by Paul O'Neill: 

We were very nervous this spring with the unusual weather.  Many of our varieties were affected by last frost, so we expect this year's harvest to be slightly smaller than last year.  For the first time we have white and red seedless table grapes, ripe for the picking.  Our staff has sampled these varieties and we are very impressed with the sweetness and quality.  We are expecting lots of rain this weekend, and may not be able to pick until Monday, August 15.  We are not open right now for walk-in customers, so please call us and we will try to accommodate your requests.  We are sampling our asian pears and we guesstimate that our Shinseiki Asian Pear will be selectively picking them on August 24.  Our long range guestimate for Hosui Asian Pear is September 1st along with Gala Apple and Chinese Grape.  We still offer free tours up until September 18th.   Please note hours and days of operation below.
