What Vegetables are Grown at Cabalo's Orchard?

ALL OF THE VEGETABLES GROWN AT CABALO'S ORCHARD ARE GROWN USING ORGANIC PRACTICES. THAT MEANS THAT WE USE ONLY ORGANIC CERTIFIED PEST CONTROL, FERTILIZATION AND WEED CONTROL PRODUCTS. WE MADE A CHOICE TO NOT CERTIFY OUR PRODUCTS AS ORGANIC.  FRUIT IS OUR PRIMARY CROP SO OUR VEGTABLE SELECTION IS LIMITED BUT THE VEGETABLES WE CARRY ARE DELICIOUS. OUR PUMPKIN PATCH, PICKLING CUCUMBERS AND GREEN BEANS ARE THE ONLY VEGETABLE CROPS AVAILABLE FOR U-PICK.

Slicing Cucumbers

We have regular green Slicing Cucumbers and Lemon Cucumbers.  Cucumbers are available from late July through the Frost.

Winter Squash

We grow several varieties of winter squash.  We always allow our winter squash to get frosted in the field.  It makes them taste better.  So you will have to be patient and wait for Mother Nature to do her magic.  Winter squash are available from frost (early October) until about February, sometimes longer.
