Luther Burbank, the father of classical plant breeding, gave us 120 types of plums, 18 peaches, 28 apples, 500 hybrid roses, 30 cherries, 34 pears, and many more. His most cultivated - The Russet-Burbank Potato - saved The Irish from potato famine.
A man of nature, he worked alongside the world, rather than on top of it, to enhance humanity.
In his own words “ What a joy life is when you have made a close working partnership with Nature, helping her to produce for the benefit of mankind new forms, colors, and perfumes in flowers which were never known before.”
At Luther’s we carry on in the tradition of Burbank, working with local producers, combining and experimenting with seasonal produce. We attempt to capture the spirit of his work in frozen treats that are always different and always good.
Local produce, direct from farmers, just tastes better.
