Harvest time is now!

When you last heard from the Santa Fe Frog, we had just introduced the latest sour cherry product “Chelish”.

Since then the cherries have been growing, and developing.  Beautiful plump Carmine Jewel Cherries, growing row by row.

Although, when the photos were taken, the cherries weren’t quite ready for harvest, but the extreme heat with no rain in July, has brought it on very quickly.

 

This is a very busy time of year, finding help that can work the long hours to help package and freeze the cherries as soon off the trees as possible.   Days are long, work is hard, but the rewards are endless.  Just think of how may bottles of Chelish, Churtney, and Rib N Wing Sauce these beautiful “jewels” will produce, with a small mention of the very healthy  Santa Fe Sour Cherry Juice that will soon be available.

I can taste it already!

So, if you are looking for me, please be patient.

I’ll get back to you as soon as I can.
