Crop Report 2 Nov 2014

British nights have closed in now and as a result we have seen a decline in the variety of British Produce.

Piccolo Parsnips and Chantaney Carrots remain a safe bet. Also try Brussel Top as alternative to normal Sprouts. Red and Green Kale are excellent along with fantastic Savoy. Golden, Candied Beetroot remain available and vibrant!

Most Squashes remain available including Harlequin, Blue Ballet, Spa-ghetti, Kabucha and Striped Princess. There are excellent ornamental Gourds available perfect for display. English Pumpkins remain available al-though we may head back to the French iron bar so please state English/French. Thanks

English Cauliflowers have nice white curds. English Broccoli has virtually finished and we will be moving to Spanish which will be 6Kg Boxes.

English Rainbow Chard has finished! All English Salads have finished and we see ourselves receiving goods from Italy, France and Spain. This is still excellent quality. This includes Cu-cumbers, Iceberg, Cos, Gem, Lolla Rossa, Biando, Oak and Curly. All Baby salads. We have Baby Mixed salads available and very good.

Nutbournes English Heritage Tomatoes still remain available but coming to an end soon.

New heritage Potatoes including Pink Fir, Highland Burgundy, Salad Blue and more to match.

All your favourite root veg remains constant, Swede, Parsnips, Turnips. Main varieties of Potatoes to suit your menus are Maris Piper, King Edwards, Large Reds, Estima and Lovers.
