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 is the only vegetable crop available for u-pick.
Slicing Cucumbers: We have regular green Slicing Cucumbers and Lemon Cucumbers. Cucumbers are available from late July through the Frost.

Summer Squash: Green zucchini, yellow crookneck and several colors of patty pan, picked at their small, gourmet size every few days. There are always a few extra large zucchini for making zucchini bread. Summer squash is available from July thru the frost.
Tomatoes: We do not grow canning quantites of tomatoes. We have found it is not cost effective for us. We do however have a few beautiful heritage varieties of slicing and roma tomatoes. Tomatoes are available from August until 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.
Green Beans: We grow a beautiful variety of long strait green beans suitable for canning, freezing, french-cutting or packing whole for dilly beans. Beans are available in August
