Produce Notes: June 19, 2019

Summer is here, and summer means tomatoes, so this week we are highlighting California-grown slicer tomatoes as our Super Fresh Deal! “Slicer” (or “slicing”) tomatoes are those that strike the right balance between meatiness and juiciness while being big enough to slice onto burgers and sandwiches. Great for pairing with the grill or slipping into a salad, they’ll bring the taste of summer to any desk lunch! Delicious leftovers are sure to result when you combine slicer tomatoes with local zucchini and black kale - also on this week’s Fresh Deals! Saute your antioxidant-rich organic produce with some onions and your preferred seasoning and you have a perfect pasta topping!

The recent West Coast heat wave may have disappeared behind the clouds of June gloom, but its impact is significant: California-grown blackberries, parsley, and lettuces were affected by the intense heat and supply may come up short in the next few weeks due to heat damage. California blueberry season is winding down but strawberry season is going strong, as are stone fruit other than cherries. Anticipate rising avocado prices as Mexico’s harvest winds down and demand continues to grow.


In other local news, California-grown melons are in strong supply, and this week we’re celebrating the cantaloupe with our Fresh Deal pricing. Did you know that melon seeds are edible when roasted, like slightly-chewy squash seeds? After removing as much of the netting (the fibers that help the seeds cling to the flesh) as you can, rinse the separated seeds, season to taste, and roast for around 15 minutes at 400°F, checking often to make sure they don’t burn. Melon seeds are good sources of fiber and protein, and eating the seeds means both more bang for your buck and less food waste!
