Our Fruit

peaches.jpgBright Colorado sun at 6000 feet plus cool nights and clean mountain water makes our fruit some of the tastiest you’ll ever eat.  Osito Orchard is under the expert organic management of Frank Stonaker, who shared his many years of experience growing organic vegetables and row crops with his students at CSU before fulfilling his dream to reach higher and grow fruit.  

Here’s what’s growing on our orchard:

Peaches – Newhaven, Redhaven, Cresthaven, Suncrest and Red Globe; all yellow fleshed, freestone varieties.  Available early August through mid-September.
