Lots of our summer/autumn vegetables are declining fast as the days get shorter and colder but Red Devil apples and Concorde pears are plentiful this week. Bonus Pears and Bonus Apples are both available at £2 per kg. Some of the apples have surface imperfections so we are offering them as Bonus Juicing Apples at £1 per kg. The lettuce leaves and flowers packs are changing with the arrival of the first Miner’s Lettuce of the season – so you may get a mixture containing these nutritious leaves.
Most of the French beans and cucumbers are finished for the season but the tomatoes are still going strong – at least until the first hard frost. As well as our regular cherry tomato variety called Sakura, we have a yellow mini plum type called Miele, an orange one called Orange Santa and two peculiar ones: Indigo Blue, which has small purple and brown fruit, and Mirabelle Blanche which is a pale yellow colour – sometimes described as ivory.
We are picking apples, pears, broccoli, leeks, coriander, lemon balm, lovage, flat leaf parsley, rocket, cherry tomatoes, kale, cavolo nero, Oriental leaves, courgettes, chives, flowery salad packs and chard.
