PRODUCE NEWS FOR THE NEW YEAR

BY MARY ANNE

  Here we are at the beginning of 2015 anticipating a fresh new year. The winter has been fairly mild with little hard frost so far, resulting in decent citrus and seasonal fruits and vegetables. However, we are feeling effects from the previous season which was hard on Valencia oranges, avocados, and some other crops. Prices are notably higher than last year with Mexican produce more costly and less available. The citrus season is in full swing though the Satsuma Mandarin crop was in short supply with slightly less quality than last year. The Page Mandarins have been exquisite but are currently gapping until more become available. This weekend we are expecting our first local citrus selections of navels, Clementines and pink grapefruit grown by the farmer Greg Gebhart of Winters, California. Minneola tangelos, Meyer lemons, and Cara Cara navels are all starting to become more available. New varieties of tangerines will also come on the market. Quality seems to be good. Mangos are starting to arrive from Mexico.  We have local kiwis from Piercy that are absolutely delicious. Loose carrots and Delicata squash are arriving today from Covelo. Greens such as chard and kale are in good supply and reasonably priced. Most lettuces are a little scarce and there are many issues with the baby greens which are sold in clamshells. They may be limited for a few weeks while kinks are worked out. If you are looking for a decent tomato try the red grape cherry toms from Del Cabo or Limited (Mexican grown). They are pretty tasty for a winter fruit.  Before Valentine’s Day, the first strawberries of the season should start to arrive.

 The next couple of months are the low season for produce.  We try to keep the supplies interesting, but there are limitations at this time of year. Stay healthy by eating your greens and topping them with varieties of citrus. Apples and pears are also in good supply. Walnuts in the shell can be cracked and toasted to add some oil and protein. We also have some early season avocados from California which are large and reasonably priced. They have creamy flesh and good flavor.

  We will have some lovely rose bouquets and other Valentine-themed floral selections available for February 14th. As well as bouquets, we will have mini-orchids in 2” pots, heart-shaped jasmine wreaths, and mini roses in heart pots. Be sure to think of us when shopping for your Valentine.

 Enjoy your year ahead. Make resolutions to eat more fresh produce. Remember to exercise and stay happy. We wish you all the very best that the New Year can bring
