We grow two varieties of persimmons, one is the Hachia which is very much like persimmons you may be used to. They are only edible when you let them sit to the point of near rotting. The Fuyu persimmon however is absolutely amazing. It can be eaten at any time much like an apple. Delicious!

We grow a huge variety of mandarins and tangerines, including the Tahoe Gold and Dancy Mandarins which are famous for their rich flavor and juicy interior. We offer a huge selection of easy to peel natural varieties. Don’t hesitate to ask for a sample, as the flavor of each mandarin varies wildly.
These peculiar fruits are a perfect example of what makes Murray Family Farms rare fruit expert Steven Murray great! He found these delicious berries while out on an adventure across the globe, and brought them home to our farm! They are sometimes called Mandarin Melonberries because of how similar their flavor is to watermelon. Even the seeds look like watermelon seeds!
We grow a large variety of apples, including some very unique ones like the Arkhansa black apple. It’s exceedingly dark with an unrivaled crispness!

Sea Beans are an exceptionally unique plant, in that it works well as an alternative to salt. These unassuming green treats make for amazingly unique additions to salad or topped on watermelon. Simply rub the green stems together or try them whole!
Asian pears are often times mistaken for apples, with a rough sandpapery exterior. They tend to be very sweet with little juice.

The guava is one of our more exotic fruits. You may be familiar with them from various drinks, but you can get them fresh right here at Murray Family Farms!
We grow a wide variety of lemons including the Meyer Lemon. It’s cross bred with oranges, giving it a slightly more mild taste with a bit of sugar. You can identify Meyer lemons because they tend to have a softer exterior and a round shape.
The sole variety of lime we grow is the Costello lime, otherwise known as the Key Lime! If you are looking to make a fresh key-lime pie, Murray family farms is the first place to stop!
Pluots are a mix between Plums and Apricots. While Apriums tend to look like apricots, Pluots come in a huge variety of shapes and colors!

Pomegranates are the fruit of kings! They even have their own little crown. One of the most interesting things about pomegranates are that they still have their original latin name. Pome means apple, and Granate means stone, or seed. They were referred to as stone apples back in the day! Don’t you feel clever now!

Sunflowers make a fantastic contribution to home gardens and are very low maintenance. If you’re thinking of starting a family garden, start with sunflowers!
While we grow a big selection of pluots, the few plums we grow are to die for. If you look closely at your plums, you can tip yourself off to the freshness by taking note of the powder on the exterior. This is called “Luster” or “Bloom”, and is produced naturally. The more powder, the fresher the fruit!
