After the hottest February since records begun we can all start looking forward to some early spring produce arriving onto our Fruit Markets.
Finally, dull January is out the way and we can look forward to some busier months ahead and we have Valentine’s Day just around the corner. Unfortunately, the cold nights and frosty mornings may make it a difficult month. Here’s a quick update on the Fruit and Veg world!
The calm after the storm… Hope you all had a great Christmas and we wish you a Happy New Year From everyone at Total Produce.
Christmas is on our doorstep, time to get some sprouts on your plate!
Brassicas are now at their best. Great value and full of flavour to add to your plate.
New season bakers and main crop potatoes are now available following a short period of poor quality old season product, however, prices will rise!
This next year is going to be a tough year for the potato lovers, any graded potato will demand high prices.
Coloured cauliflower is now making an appearance along with new season purple sprouting, rainbow chard and black kale.
The strawberry season is very late this year due to the cold weather at the beginning of March.
The Dutch salad season is in full flow and as usual the quality is excellent.
There’s a good supply of super quality home-grown rainbow chard.
Sweet potatoes are in short supply and are commanding high prices. The forced Rhubarb season has now finished and we have moved over to outdoor varieties.
