Veg Box News 23rd - 26th January, 2018

As I have mentioned previously in Veg Box News, cold frosty weather is not conducive to the picking of vegetables in British fields so once again we are a little at the mercy of our suppliers as to whether the ordered veg actually arrives.  Likely lines to be affected are the Artichokes and Cabbage particularly. 


Potatoes – DesirĂ©e (we hope) 1.2kg
Carrots 600g
Onions 500g
Jerusalem Artichokes 600g
Cabbage – Savoy or a Tundra
Fennel 400g
Butternut Squash

B’s will get Leeks 600g instead of Potatoes. They won’t get the fennel but will get a Red Pepper
D’s will get a further 800g Potatoes and a portion of Purple Sprouting Broccoli
E’s will get the Fennel Leeks and Red Pepper
L’s and M’s will get the above additions and also a Lettuce


Apples – Crimson Crisp 600g
Bananas 600g
Blood Oranges 600g
Pears – Conference 400g
A Grapefruit
A Lime

Q’s will also get a Mango.

Blood oranges are particularly tasty at the moment – it’s a good time of year for citrus generally – but they are not to everyone’s taste. The Navels are good too though so let us know if you want to have those instead.

For those with a sweet tooth, we still have (non-organic) Seville oranges… We’ll take great care to make sure we don’t put the Seville oranges in the fruit boxes by mistake, as happened once a few years ago!!  Lot of complaints that week - Oops!
