Back in the beginnning, fruit was supposed to be our only vegetative crop... things changed, but the fruit stayed.

In seasonal order, the berries we grow are:

Strawberries
Black Raspberries
Red Raspberries
Gold Raspberries
Gooseberries
Blueberries
Blackberries
Elderberries
(Some of these bear twice a year, weather permitting)

Tree fruits include several varieties each of:

Apples
Apricots
Sweet Cherries
Tart Cherries
Peaches
Plums
Pears

Grapes and Rhubarb don't fit either list, but we grow them anyway!

Someday, we hope to add Persimmons, Paw-Paws and maybe Bananas to the list - those are starting over after very bad shipping experiences as tiny trees. (Yes, the bananas do require a protected environment in this location!) 
Because tree fruits are very difficult to protect from erratic weather, growing healthy trees doesn't necessarily mean harvesting fruit - every peach this year (2013) is chicken feed because of splitting from excess moisture.

When we succeed, fruit is dedicated to our Jams and our own comsumption; due to the powers that the government has given itself, and the attendant soup of regulations and inspections included in the  FDA's new
