The Brooks are Frog Hollow Farm’s first cherries off the tree and have been featured in Alice Waters’ famous copper fruit bowl. The variety was developed at U.C. Davis in the 1980s and doesn’t sacrifice taste, color or texture for its early arrival. They resemble the Bing with a more balanced sweetness in their dark, rich flesh. Brooks are available mid-May to early June.
This is Frog Hollow Farm’s signature pear and for good reason. It has a great origin story: this pear was discovered by Thomas Oscar Warren growing naturally outside a post office in Hattiesburg, MS. Once known as the Post Office pear, it’s taken on its founder name and is a favorite of chefs. Too difficult to grow for most farmers to consider it’s never caught on commercially but Farmer Al has never shied away from putting the time and effort into a fruit that tastes so good.
