Month by month, here are some offerings retailers can look forward to from Frieda’s.


Look for a bounty of tropical fruits, each offering its own unique taste and texture. Lychee offers a sweet, floral flavor, while passion fruit packs a tangy punch. Dragon fruit, in both conventional and organic varieties, adds a vibrant pop of color to fruit salads or smoothie bowls. And Rambas rambutan features sweet and juicy flesh encased in a spiky exterior.


Lychee and dragon fruit return, along with Angelcots, a hybrid variety of apricots known for its exceptional sweetness and juiciness.


Spice up your summer dishes with the arrival of Hatch chili peppers. These flavorful peppers have a cult following for their smoky, earthy taste and varying levels of heat.
