backyard fruit project

Sometimes, the most glorious fruit of the season is hanging on a tree (or vine) in someone’s backyard. If you have an over-abundance of gorgeous, unsprayed fruit growing on your property, please give Kira a call at 916.838.4007. We may be able to put it to work at Real Pie Company!

Backyard Fruit we are most interested in:

  • Figs
  • Blood oranges
  • Seville (sour) oranges
  • Meyer lemons
  • Wild blackberries (hint: picking these is a great project for kids during the summertime!)
  • Rhubarb
  • Quinces
  • Very flavorful and firm-fleshed varieties of ripe stone fruit (yellow peaches, nectarines, apricots, plums, etc.) with bright, lively acidity – we do not bake with white peaches or nectarines
