PostHeaderIcon Spice Zee, Cherums and Plerries…Hybrid Fruit in California

You ask, what’s a plerrie anyway?  Or you could ask; “What do you get when you cross a plum with a cherry? A hybrid fruit of course!

Hybrid fruit is a potentially lucrative, and delicious, market. Fruit growers are motivated by the lure of inventing a product that commands premium prices, from 50 cents to $1 or more per pound than conventional fruit. The breeders are also aiming for fruit that will have a longer harvest period to be available to shoppers longer. And with the rise in cooking styles that celebrate the ingredients, American consumers are demonstrating a willingness to spend more on food and a desire to hear the stories behind their produce.

The Best of Murphys, CA in one fulfilling three hour tour! OK, everyone is hearing about how wonderful the little town of Murphys is, but how in the heck can you get the whole experience? Well, with these people. I went on this tour today and I got a wine tour, a food tour and a history tour all in one. Every place we went to (9 total) was very informative about their foods, wines, and/or wares. Though the menus will change I feel I should say something about each and every place they were all THAT good. but instead I'll lastly mention the gal that operates the tour. Her name is Shelby, and wow, what a guide she is. I know this tour just started up, but she must have done this in another life because she knew so much about the town, it's history, the people living there, the businesses and the wine. Delicious food, great wine and awesome history of the town. Oh a few steps here and there but really easy no hills to climb.
