Autumn Fruits and Vegetables
This time of the year is always a little strange when it comes to fruit and veggies. The summer fruits such as peaches, nectarines, plums and green grapes are getting towards the end, and their quality can sometimes be a little inconsistent.
New season apples have started for some varieties (Fuji and Royal Gala), but not for others (Pink Lady, Jazz and Granny Smith). The summer oranges (the Valencia variety) are starting to look a little tired, but it’s still too early for the Navels which are the winter variety.
The weather also plays a part, “Is it still summer, will it be winter….. next week?” Confusing for us, even more so for the plants.
That being said, I’ll be off to the market again on Tuesday morning to hand select the best fruit and veggies that I can find.
Never fear, Micky Booth is here!
Have a great week.
