Hosui Asian Pears, Winter Hours

Cold Room Release: Hosui (Nov 5 through Nov 21)

We are finishing our harvest for 2020. We are picking apples and late Asian pears while weather permits. Usually each year we pack a mix of early-season and mid-season Hosui for our cold room. Due to the high demand this year, we were only able to store late-harvest Hosui Asian pears in our cold room. Late-harvest period for Hosui was late September - early October this year. I checked the sugar level of Hosui today (Nov 1) and the measurement was 15.5 brix. This is very sweet for an Asian pear. Most store-bought Asian pears are between 10 and 12 brix. I sample tasted some of the pears and they are full of flavor. They are not as crunchy as fresh-picked, but still very enjoyable.

Please note that we do not hold shelf-space in our cold room for customer purchases. That means that you must pick up your purchase from the farm within 7 days of your purchase. You must book a time-slot in order to come to the farm for curbside pickup. We will be offering Hosui for pickup from November 5 until November 21 in half-peck ($15) and peck ($30) size bags. Half-peck bag is between 5 to 6 pounds. A peck size bag is 10-12 pounds. If you love Hosui and don't have any left, we suggest you order earlier than later.

Winter Hours

We have reduced our hours to Thursday, Friday and Saturday, 3:00 pm to 5:00 pm. We have time-slots every 15 minutes that you can book yourself online. If you cannot get a time-slot, please let us know and we will try to make a special booking for you whenever possible. This is subject to incliment weather. We do not run curbside during snow storms and heavy rain.
