Zea Sonnabend is retired from a long career as an organic inspector for CCOF in Santa Cruz and is a former member of the National Organics Standards Board. She is a member of the California Rare Fruit Growers and an avid seed saver. You don’t need to look far to see her passion for rare & unusual fruits that abound at Fruitilicious Farm. Zea & her team tend a heirloom apple orchard, with over 80 varieties. Some varieties were chosen because they were trees already existing in California or are culturally significant or have resistance to diseases like apple scab, which is hard for organic growers to control. Some of the trees are exclusively cider apples from abroad. There are numerous varieties of figs, citrus fruits, avocados, pears, peaches & the list goes on. They also tend a small portion of the property designated to propagating organic seed.
